PLEASE!!! No bright red big font shouting.......

NOW--What was the question?

Man pages normally come with the SW, but there is no reason that you can't get them separately. Google "man pages" for lots of leads.

I have changed the font back to normal. You do know that some people can't see red right?

Anyway, you can install the man-pages package and as Pixellany mentioned, many packages install also their own manual pages.
