hi all, I know this isn't programming directly but will help indirectly to a program I am writing.
I'm not sure if I am using the manual pages correctly from the terminal. From notes from a lecture the professor has said that a 'man -k uid' - will bring up info such as this:
The lecturer says that you can then exit the screen by pressing 'Q' for quit.Code:struct passwd *getpwnam(const char *name); struct passwd *getpwuid(uid_t uid); int getpwnam_r(const char *name, struct passwd *pwbuf, char *buf, size_t buflen, struct passwd **pwbufp); int getpwuid_r(uid_t uid, struct passwd *pwbuf, char *buf, size_t buflen, struct passwd **pwbufp);
However, when ever i do it all i get is:
Why isn't the synopsis and explanation of uid displayed? Or am I doing this completely wrong?Code:cwaves (6x) - languid sinusoidal colors dbus-uuidgen (1) - Utility to generate UUIDs fdutilsconfig (8) - configure the suid bit of fdmount findfs (8) - Find a filesystem by label or UUID Gnome2::Druid (3pm) - (unknown subject) Gnome2::DruidPage (3pm) - (unknown subject) Gnome2::DruidPageEdge (3pm) - (unknown subject) Gnome2::DruidPageStandard (3pm) - (unknown subject) Gnome2::UIDefs (3pm) - (unknown subject) LDP (7) - Intro to the Linux Documentation Project, with help, guides and documents mdoc (7) - quick reference guide for the -mdoc macro package pam_loginuid (8) - Record user's login uid to the process attribute uuidd (8) - UUID generation daemon uuidgen (1) - command-line utility to create a new UUID value vol_id (8) - probe filesystem type and read label and uuid
