Welcome to LQ.

Linux man pages
http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/...=linux&pth=ALL


The command : ls -R /usr/share/man/ > list-man.txt

.. will save a text file in /home/<name>/
with your installed man pages.

I don't know if there is a bundle for them. I'm sure you could write a script, but it would probably be easier just to get them manually

Are you saying you do not have man on your system ?

You don't. These manuals are already installed on
your Linux OS.
Use the terminal window : Please type : man <command>
And you will see the man page as text for that "command".

Or just read online : http://linux.die.net/man/

Code:

man -a system_call_name

Once when i used ubuntu 8.04, I didn't have man pages pre-installed on my system ! I downloaded a tar ball of man pages and then installed them in my computer..

Thanks!

the package you're looking for is manpages-dev. it installs section 2 and 3.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/manpages-dev

Download through synaptic/apt-get.
