Yeah the man pages are always there.
But this is common for new users to really not understand the man pages thoroughly.
Even I had this problem and even now when I went through ld man page, could not understand it well and had to take help of web.
Yeah thats true but everyone can take their own time to get used to linux. So, its better that unless people get used to using it they get help here.
And once they know how it works we will see fewer people coming here without going through man and info pages.
Distribution: debian, gentoo, os x (darwin), ubuntu
i more enjoy showing people where to find the information and helping with understanding issues :-P
(partly because i also prefere being pointed in the right direction when i have a question, rather than getting pre-digested somethings ^^)
