    C++ manual pages?

    If I do 'man cin' under my cygwin installation or ubunti linux nothing is found.

    Do I have to install something specific to be able to use C++ manual pages?

    It is probably under the relevant iostream functionality, but I have never used that sort of thing.

    C++ Reference [C++ Reference] is what I use.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    Out of curiosity I did an apropos for C++ (qv "man apropos") and there are only two entries, one of which is for the compiler. Googling would almost make it seem that there are no C++ man pages, but in fact there are some packages here:
    ftp://gcc.gnu.org/pub/gcc/libstdc++/doxygen/
    However, GNU* have html documentation for the glibc library which is more in depth than their C manual pages, so I would look for the C++ equivalent of that.

    *GNU built both the C and C++ libraries used on all linux systems
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Glibc isn't only libc for linux and every linux system doesn't use it.

    Sorry, I meant 99.5% of linux systems.

    I would think embedded systems running Linux with (diet|uC)libc|newlib would be more than 0,5% of all linux systems. ;o
