Apropos is one of those many programs on Linux that you have installed but probably didn't even know existed. This program will let you query the mandb for a list of man pages that match a specific search criteria which will let you do interesting things for example, if you just get a full list of them, what would happen if you then sent that list into dmenu to use as a way to filter, I'll show you a cool script that does at some point in the video.
