 Description  « Hide

Need to make all man pages viewable through the man command on all platforms.
Currently, they are all available only on Solaris, because Solaris can take
SGML-formatted man pages. NB, the asadmin man page content IS available
everywhere through the asadmin help command--but man pages for other commands
(~15) are not available at all ex-Solaris.

The binary build could make them available on Linux and Windows (w/Cygwin or
MKS) by using the Solaris catman command to convert the SGML pages to nroff
format, and then include the nroff files in the binary. The SGML man pages are
in CVS at /appserv-docs/sman/man1 and /man8.
