I will ask my question starting from a real example.
From the command line prompt, I want to search for a command line tool that will output information about my smart card.
Side Note: I already know that the command line tool that I am looking for is the
system_profiler SPSmartCardsDataType but let's pretend I do not know yet.
From the command line prompt I type the following:
apropos smart card
Step #2 I receive the following result:
SmartCardServices(7) - overview of SmartCard support SmartCardServices-legacy(7) - overview of legacy SmartCard support com.apple.ifdreader(8) - SmartCard reader daemon ctkahp(8) - SmartCard Agent ctkbind(8) - SmartCard pairing tool ctkd(8) - SmartCard daemon/agent pam_smartcard(8) - Smartcard PAM module ssh-keychain(8), ssh-keychain.dylib(8) - smartcard/keychain support library
And of course I can use the
SmartCardServices command line tool but this is not what I am looking for.
Question: How can I make a better search for a specific command line tool? I guess a search that will query the command line options too?
In my specific case if I search for the keyword smart card why the output does not show me at least the term
I hope I was clear, if not let me know and I can rephrase my question. Once again, the above it is just an example, I use SmartCard because this is what I had issue in searching today, but it can be anything else.
