The Linux Blog – May Site Updates

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — at 7:02 pm on Monday, May 5, 2008

I did a little programming before I left for my excursion and one of the things I partially completed I have just put online. If you check out the Linux Man Pages section of the website you will now notice that the articles are cross referenced with the man pages. That being said I still have a bit of work to do to get the man pages to show up on the posts but the majority of the work is done.

So, now if you browse The Linux Blogs man pages you can get additional information on how to use the Linux tools. I may add links to other peoples articles in these man pages at some time, if you have a Linux Blog or website with some decent tutorials let me know if you are interested!

I have a few more things that I would like to do, such as a search and a better way to process the man pages but after that I will consider that section done. Let me know if there are any features that you would like to see in the man pages section and also let me know if you like this feature! Comments on The Linux Blog are always welcomed!

Man Page Not Found

I’ve added this post because the Linux Man Pages that I have added to this site need to be directed some where when a man page is not found. I stumbled upon the problem after I saw Google trying to index pages that did not exist. My guess is that there are links within the man pages section that are bad.

I will be monitoring this page to see where the hits to this page are coming from but if you followed a link here from the Linux man pages section then I would really appreciate a comment with which page you ended up here from and I will fix the problem.

Thanks in advance,


Linux Man Pages Added

I’ve just added a section to this site that I have been working on for a while.

Basically I’ve been wanting a place to store the man pages online. So, I wrote a little script that would let me do it. All I have to do now is write a search for it and then some small little tweaks.

Let me know if you find the man page section useful. It can be found under the pages section on the right hand column of this site or you can access it directly by going to
