    Linux Programmer's Guide Man Pages

    I need them installed so I can use them trough the command line.
    I searched them but I only found html, tex, pdf etc versions, but I need the "man" version.

    Can someone help me?
    Thank you

    If it's not at tldp I'd think you have to try to convert this thing yourself.

    But:
    Can't you just use the html-version with a text-browser like lynx or links?

    By far the easiest option, if you ask me.

    Hi, maybe this is what you needs:

    cyt@ubuntu:~> apt-cache search manpages-dev
    manpages-dev - Manual pages about using GNU/Linux for development

    The manpages-dev isn't on apt-get anymore. Is there something else I can download to get these Man Pages????
