On my system that command will not give the desired
man page. It will give me stat(1), however in this
particular case it is really stat(2), which is of
interest. Actually I think stat is not even the
right function to use for this, lstat should be used
instead. So try:
man 2 lstat
(or just man lstat, since there usually isn't any
lstat man page in section 1.)
