guavac: no documentation
I have decided to learn Java. Debian comes with a package, guavac,
which is apparently a Java development environment.
I say apparently because it is undocumented. That is, there is no
documentation in the /usr/doc/guavac directory, just copyright and
changelog information. There's no man page. There *is* a file named
doesn't work. If I explicitly type
then I get a *different* error message, but I still can't see the
docs. Checking further, I discover that the file is 109 bytes long,
presumably too short to actually contain any documentation. I hate
the stupid info format anyway: what's wrong with the man page format?
Info is opaque and hard to use, but has the advantage of being
obscure. (Sorry, I'll turn off the "rant" circuit now.)
Anyway: are there any better Linux development tools for a Java
beginner? Are there any guavac docs that actually have information in
them? Should I reinstall guavac to get the docs working?
I will appreciate any help. Thank you.
