I'm only beginning by odyssey into programming so I read lots and try to ask
questions so that I understand at least 'something' better.

When I did # man gcc or # gcc man I get - - -
# man gcc
root@memyself:/# gcc man
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find man: No such file or directory
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
root@memyself:/# apt-cache show gcc-doc
