An mdoc manual is divided into two logical parts: the prologue and the document body.
The prologue specifies information regarding the manual's classification. For the most part, this information does not change over the course of development. It specifies the manual's title (which may encompass multiple documented components) and category, the date of last editing, the other information.
The document body consists of the documentation content. This material changes over the course of development, and is the bulk of the manual page. It minimally consists of the component name, invocation syntax (if applicable), and a description of operation.
