No. Enter the man page as you have done, then press the forward slash and it will allow you to type in a string to search for.
Few additional things:
- If it finds one or more matches for the string, you can press letter "n", no quotes just press n and it will find "next"
But rather than everyone give you individual tips, when you are in a manual page you can type the letter h to get help and it will show you all of what people are talking about here, and much, much more. A lot of it is very similar to the vi interface if you happen to know some of that.
