man.config


Hi,

I have updated man.config file manually. Any service i need to restart so that the new man.config will be reread again? As soon as i added the changes didn't take place. But after i rebooted the server, the man.config changes were picked up.

I beleive the command is manpath, with appropriate options to specify the config file to use. See man manpath for more information.
