Unix manual pages are gathered into several sections. A section is related to a given topic:

As two different sections can contain two man pages with the same name, we note manuals as follows: man_page(section). Therefore, crontab(5) identifies the crontab manual from the section 5 (to be opposed to crontab(1)).
