man pages trap

when i open a console in mdk 10.0 and request a man page, I can't see how to get back to the command prompt. I can screen up and down to read the man page, but I have to close the terminal window to get out of the man page. What do I need to do to get back to a prompt?

Merci. I'll give it a try tonight. I expected that the answer would be easy.

BTW, where could/should I have found this information? I rechecked my man pages and can't find a reference to it.
