    10. Man & Help Pages
    For nearly any command, we have help pages, or man pages to help us out if we want to know more about them.
    Sometimes we even have them from within a program, or on a Readme file that came with the program if we are using one that we are unfamiliar with.
    1. ls help = shows help page for the ls command.
    2. man ls = will show a manual page for that command if it exists Press the Enter key to skip down line by line, press q to quit, if that doesn't work, we'll just press "Ctrl+c" to cancel a command as usual, but q should work for this.
