    Strange problem with man pages for Pthreads

    Hi,

    I am using UBUNTU 10.04 and I am facing a strange problem with man pages for pthreads.

    I dont find the man page for pthread_create while I see man pages for some of the other pthread related functions. If I give man pthread_ and press tab I see the following output.

    Code:
    $ man pthread_
    pthread_attr_getaffinity_np     pthread_getaffinity_np
    pthread_attr_getguardsize         pthread_getattr_np
    pthread_attr_getstack                   pthread_getconcurrency
    pthread_attr_getstackaddr         pthread_getcpuclockid
    pthread_attr_getstacksize          pthread_setaffinity_np
    pthread_attr_setaffinity_np      pthread_setconcurrency
    pthread_attr_setguardsize         pthread_setschedprio
    pthread_attr_setstack                   pthread_timedjoin_np
    pthread_attr_setstackaddr        pthread_tryjoin_np
    pthread_attr_setstacksize         pthread_yield
    So how could I install man pages for pthread_create and other ???

    At present my man page version is 2.5.7.
    $ man -V
    man 2.5.7

    Is the package 'manpages-posix-dev' installed on your system?

    Hmmm ... seems I dont have the 'manpages-posix-dev' package installed. After installation it solved my problem. But how could they include a small subset of pthread man pages ... and leave out the rest of them
