Description Honza Horak 2015-09-18 01:41:34 EDT
Description of problem:
In RHSCL we usually have a simple man page that describes how to use the collection and SCL generally. Wouldn't something like that be good also for devtoolset users?

Example of one of the man pages:

       rh-mongodb26 - manual page for rh-mongodb26 2.0 Software Collection

       scl enable rh-mongodb26 'mongod'

       Package  rh-mongodb26  provides  MongoDB  server  delivered  as a Software Collection. For more information about Software Collections, see the scl(1) man page. By installing the
       rh-mongodb26 collection, you will get the minimum working set of packages to have a working MongoDB server.

       Software Collections allow you to build and execute applications which are not located in the filesystem root hierarchy, but are stored  in  an  alternative  location,  which  is
       /opt/rh/rh-mongodb26/root in case of the rh-mongodb26 collection.

       This package provides the mongod server daemon and the mongos sharding server daemon software, default configuration files and init scripts.

       When you want to work with the rh-mongodb26 collection, use the scl utility (see the scl(1) man page for usage) to enable the scl environment.

       Configuration for the rh-mongodb26 software collection is located under /etc/opt/rh/rh-mongodb26 .

       scl enable rh-mongodb26 'command --arg'

              Run a specific command with the argument --arg within the rh-mongodb26 software collections environment.

       scl enable rh-mongodb26 'mongod'

              Run mongod from the rh-mongodb26 software collection.

       scl enable rh-mongodb26 'bash'

              Run an interactive shell wherein the rh-mongodb26 software collection is enabled.

       scl enable rh-mongodb26 'man mongod'

              Show man pages for the mongod command, which is a part of the rh-mongodb26 software collection.
