Those of us old enough to pre-date the web will recognize this as
the most popular pastime then available on a computer.  You may
discover that if "found" is expressed properly, you will eventually
visit almost all of the available manpages.  An interesting exercise
is to see if there are any manpages that are unreachable with this
algorithm.
