How do I use Linux manual online?

I had Linux installed. I can't find the help manual off line and I don't know to use it on line. How do I learn how to use it? Is there some way to down load the manual to my computer.

use "man nameofpackage" in terminal. e.g. "man curl"...

Your distro may not have a main manual. What distro do you use, I might be able to help find ya one.

The Linux ( and other flavors of *nix) had an online manual that is accessed by using the man command.

I've never tried it, but I assume that the command man man would give you some information on how to use the man pages.
