manpages

Hello,
In the manpage entry for errno, the 'see also' section refers to intro(2). But if a man intro(2) is given, an error message indicating "badly placed '('" is displayed. Similarly, I have seen attributes(5) in the 'see also' section of another manpage entry.

Does anyone have a clue about how to interpret such 'see also' entries?
thanks
PV

    man 2 intro
    man 5 attributes

    Now I hope its clear on how to access these "see also " pages
