Linux 'man' pages
« on: March 26, 2013, 12:47:46 pm »
Hi,

Just as a matter of interest, how many people were aware that the main website publishes a relatively complete set of Linux 'man' pages, and of those who do, does anyone use them or find them useful ??

http://linux.co.uk/documentation/man-pages/

(for anyone who's not noticed them, they were a feature that launched when the site initially went live - over 5000 pages ...)

I didn't realise they had all the man pages up online.  I use man pages all the time, this will be very useful.

I knew they were there, and when bored I occasionally have a looksee for new bash commands to play with.

I was not aware of these pages and find them very informative. 
For newbies, having examples of usage would be a very useful addition. 
Thanks for pointing out this URL.
