    Fedora Ant (and others) missing documentation

    I tried to install Apache Ant and some other Java related development files on a Fedora machine the other day, and tried to access their man pages.

    However, I couldn't find them, not even after running mandb. Querying the package with the rpm tool listed no manual files in the package. I searched for a separate documentation package, but there was none.

    This is all true with other packages as well (jetty, antlr).

    Does Fedora just not support documentation for these packages?

    Well, I think I solved part of my problem.

    There is an Ant manual package, but it provides a much fuller, HTML ant walkthrough, not the quick reference I was looking for.

    The thread remains open to anyone who knows where to find and install the manpages.

    The man pages should be in your terminal.

    Open the terminal and type:
    Code:
    man man
    OR:
    Code:
    man --help
    Here's Fedora's main page and the release notes-

    Thanks for responding, but I knew how to access man pages from the terminal, but they just weren't installed with the packages on Fedora.

    However, I have realized that I have probably left this thread open for too long, so now I am going to mark it as solved.
