Right. I think part of the problem with Unix documentation is that there
are manual pages for individual things, but there are none to explain how
everything (parts of a subsystem) fits together. (Well, besides the terrible
lack of necessary detail in a lot of them (generally, not specifically X).)
The GNU info pages for the C library are pretty good in that respect: they
are organized, reading through them from first node to last node yields a
good order, they have explanations and examples, etc.
....and I just found that it doesn't exists here on my newly-installed Debian
system. Hey! What's going on? Did Debian forget to include the main
documentation for the C library? Or did I miss a package?
