Hey - the power of open source - write a 'man' variant that reads the info
pages too... instead of 'man command' or 'info command' we could have
'kate command'... Get it accepted by GNU as the next release of Man, and you
can claim to be the guru for all time.. Think about all the little kiddies
up to be told 'just ask kate'.. Fame and fortune is yours for the taking.
anyway - if you look at the 'nm' man page :-
`binutils' entry in info; The GNU Binary Utilities, Roland
H. Pesch (October 1991); ar(1), objdump(1), ranlib(1).
And then ->
linux:~> info binutils
* ar:: Create, modify, and extract from archives
* nm:: List symbols from object files
* objcopy:: Copy and translate object files
* objdump:: Display information from object files
* ranlib:: Generate index to archive contents
* readelf:: Display the contents of ELF format files.
Even the man pages are trying to be helpful..
Maybe you need to increase the caffine intake ?
