Since the release and popularization of the C++ language by Bjarne
*NIX users have anxiously typed
% man c++,
% man iostream,
but to no avail. It has been ten years since the release of the latest ISO standard, and there are still no
manC++ project attempts to mend this wound, though
it is a difficult project to complete. The C++ standard library is
made up of 50 standard headers (including the 18 standard C headers,
so I guess that makes, what, 32?), each with one or more large classes
With some mean persistance, and some help from whomever is willing to, this could be finished in as little as a month! It's unlikely, though (it will take at least a month to get this thing publicity), but still possible!
The project will be split into 51 seperate
man pages: One for
each standard header, and a final one that summarizes all the standard
% man c++
works. I have chosen this organization because each header indicates a logical block of related functions and classes, and I trust Bjarne and the ISO standard committee to make logical decisions about that.
As for the
<c*> headers, they will be lists of references
to the already well-documented C standard library.
All the pages will be placed in section 3xx of the manual, which
is a specification of
Well, I suppose the main author is me, Luke Palmer. But anyone at all with good writing skills who is willing to help can be an author on this project and be listed at the bottom in the AUTHORS section. Bjarne Stroustrup is also a major author, as I quote from his book, The C++ Programming Language [Third Edition], a lot.
Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/mancxx/ and download the latest version! It is likely that there will only be one version. Note you may have to come back later if all the pages haven't been finished.
