.TH title section date ...

Title heading. This is the first macro of a manpage, and sets the header and footer lines. The title is the name of the manpage. The section is the section the manpage should be in (a number, possibly followed by a letter). The date is the date the manpage was last updated. Different systems have different conventions for the remaining arguments to this macro. For Solaris, the fourth and fifth arguments are the left-page footer and the main (center) header.
