Why not symlink to man pages from doc directories?
It occurs to me that it might be useful if inside the
/usr/share/doc/PKG directory, there was always a subdirectory "man"
and in there symlinks to all of the man pages installed by the
package. One could then have a quick list of all relevant man pages
by simply "cd" there and "ls". Let users know they can go there and
use "man -l file.N.gz" to read a particular man page, the same way you
can do so from the source package.
For XEmacs 21 users:
(defun dired-man-locally ()
(if (= 1 (function-max-args #'manual-entry))
(manual-entry (concat (dired-get-filename) " -l"))
(manual-entry (dired-get-filename) "-l")))
(define-key dired-mode-map [(?l)] #'dired-man-locally)))
As any limb well and duly exercised, grows stronger,
the nerves of the body are corroborated thereby. --I. Watts. .''`.
