I have recently downloaded iSH from TestFlight, that I have downloaded from the App Store, and I can’t use the command ‘man’, it returns me an error.

-ash: man: not found

Is there an alias or can’t we use this command at all?

The curl command doesn’t work too.

iSH doesn’t come with many binaries. You need to install ‘man’ and curl yourself.

apk add man curl
~# man
