A real life example:

I want to read an answer from stdin into a variable, but - as I do not shell 
programming every day -
do not remember how.
Searching for "read" in the man page leads me to the wanted position after 
about 200 times hitting the
"n" key. Next I try " read ". Still about 50 key hits.
Try man bash | grep read | wc

Kind reagrds,
