    adding new global man pages


    Hi,

    Could anyone tell me how to add new global man pages?

    I have installed a new app which has around 60 man pages - but it does not add them to the man path during installation.

    I can add them locally to my login like this:

    export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/GMT/man/

    But this is not permanent (i.e. I have to add it to my login file)

    How do I add a folder of man pages that are universally available to all users, at all times, like "cd" and "tar"?

    Many thanks for any help.
