Because of user demand, in addition to full Texinfo manuals, man pages
are provided which contain extracts from those manuals. These man
pages are generated from the Texinfo manuals using
pod2man. (The man page for
g++, `cp/g++.1', just contains a `.so' reference
to `gcc.1', but all the other man pages are generated from
Because many systems may not have the necessary tools installed to generate the man pages, they are only generated if the `configure' script detects that recent enough tools are installed, and the Makefiles allow generating man pages to fail without aborting the build. Man pages are also included in release distributions. They are generated in the source directory.
Magic comments in Texinfo files starting `@c man' control what parts of a Texinfo file go into a man page. Only a subset of Texinfo is supported by `texi2pod.pl', and it may be necessary to add support for more Texinfo features to this script when generating new man pages. To improve the man page output, some special Texinfo macros are provided in `doc/include/gcc-common.texi' which `texi2pod.pl' understands:
Use for summary lists of options in manuals.
FIXME: describe the `texi2pod.pl' input language and magic comments in more detail.
