Information not on relavant man page - where to find on WEB?

Man pages generally do not include information some users would find vital.

In fact

explicitly states in part:
"... Man pages are terse, and allow you to find quickly some forgotten detail. For newcomers an introductory text with more examples and explanations is useful."
and later states:
"A  lot  of  GNU/FSF  software  is provided with info files."

I often do not have available a functioning Linux system, thus my need for web based source of information.

My current problem is proper use of dpkg-scanpackages. I need examples of its typical and atypical use. I need those to give me the background for a sensible question.

Pointers please.
