Man pages missing

Asked by Frederico Oliveira

This package doesn't seem to install the command's corresponding man pages. I know I can check my system's toolchain man pages, but my x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc version is 4.8.5 while my arm-none-eabi-gcc version is 6.3.1. Since there's such difference in versions, the behaviour and default values addopted by my system tollchain and discribed in its man page may not be the same for the arm toolchain. For example, my system gcc 4.8.5 uses gnu89 as the default language standard, while the arm 6.3.1 uses the gnu11. So I think it would be reasonable to have an individual man page for each toolchain.

Hi Frederico,

What's missing in the share/doc/gcc-arm-none-eabi/man/ subdirectory? I see all the arm-none-eabi-* tools in there. You can just do man -l share/doc/gcc-arm-none-eabi/man/man1/arm-none-eabi-gcc.1 for instance.

Best regards.

Hello Thomas, thank you for your answer.

I'm sorry, I hadn't realized the man pages was within the /usr/share/doc folder. But by the way, why wasn't the man pages moved to the /usr/share/man/ instead? After all, that's the standard path. If I just type 'man arm-none-eabi-gcc' it won't work otherwise
