When I try to view the man page for pnmpad, I see:
pnmpad is part of the Netpbm package. Netpbm documentation is
kept in HTML
Please refer to <http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc//pnmpad.html>.
If that doesn't work, also try <http://netpbm.sourceforge.net> and
Bryan Henderson, email@example.com.
Note that making the documentation available this way was a choice of
son who installed Netpbm on this system. It is also possible
Netpbm such that you would simply see the documentation instead of
you are reading now.
The two problems here are that the man pages should be installed and
the first URL in the message above shouldn't have an extra slash in
OK, i checked how the heck that works now in netpbm and created a big
tarball with all postprocessed manpages.
netpbm-10.19-3 and later will have proper manpages again.
Read ya, Phil
PS: I'm a fan of real manpages, too. :-)
