I have installed the package gnome-devel-docs. It puts a bunch of documentation files under /usr/share/help. The files have the .page extension. The content of these documentation files is not visible in devhelp or yelp. So, all the developer documentation for Gnome is installable but you can’t view it. Anyone have any idea how these files are supposed to be viewed?
I really like the way each Perl module has a man page. I which I could get Java and Gnome documentation like this. Then no matter what kind of system I’m on (GUI or plain terminal), I would be able to view it.
I also wish there was a standard application for viewing documentation. Right now we have man, info, devhelp, yelp, Firefox for html documentation. This is a ridiculous situation. I never know how to find documentation and I certainly can’t search across all of these formats at the same time. Of course, you can Google, but not if your off-line and you may not be able to find the documentation that matches the version of the libraries you have installed.
