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.
Try the info package -- it should be installed on your system. Enter
"info info" at a terminal. Then enter "info dpkg". After that, you're
on your own.
BUT I SAID
"I often do not have available a functioning Linux system,

That is my current situation, hence my explicit request for
we based information ;/
