But why in the website and not in my CDROMs? The documentation for say, a DVD aauthoring tool GUI app, cannnot be more extensive than that for cdrecord or mplayer, because of the limited set of parameters the user is expected to control in a GUI app.
However, I only have to type 'man cdrecord' or 'man mplayer' and I have there all I, as a user, need to know about cdrecord or mplayer. Or I may even do 'info <prog_name>' and there I have a more friendly/complete user's guide. It is this what I am really complaining about.
And I'll give you that I have an internet conexion and can enter the website. It is almost certain I'll get information about newer versions of the software and not about the version installed in my machine.
I.e., with the soft and the doc both in a local storage medium, mine turns into a self-contained system.
This letter may constitute a digression from the thread subject. If that is the case, I beg your pardon. Regards.
