man pages location


Hello, I'm reading a book about linux and one of the things it says is that the man pages are located at /usr/man. However, I'm using Ubuntu 8.04.1 and they are actually located at /usr/share/man. Is Ubuntu different? or does it mean that my book is a little outdated? and why did they moved them?

It doesn't really matter where it is as long as you can use it. Different distros put it in different places, but it's the same content. Slackware's man pages are in /usr/man.
