man pages aren't mandatory. 'bacman -h' shows description, usage info and even an example:

$ bacman -h
This program recreates a package using pacman's db and system files
Usage: bacman [--nocolor] <installed package name>
Example: bacman kernel26

I created a manpage for bacman. Is there any chance for this manpage to be intergrated in pacman package?

Thanks, but pacman's manpages are all written in asciidoc. We accept git formatted patches on the pacman-dev mailing list.

I not have the time for fix what Allan tell to do and I fell that the doc/ in pacman is so advance for my novicity, so I left here my patch with the hope that someother could finish the work or when I get exp I can find it and finish it.
