We could make these more specific.  For instance, it could be

cl cl-*

or even

cl cl-[0-9] cl-[0-9][0-9]

for each one of the manuals.

But that is rather clumsy.  Is there any cleaner way to do it?
Perhaps with a shell program that is given an argument such as
`cl', and returns the list of file names for that manual.
Do you know how to write one?
