After upgrading to Panther and installing X-Tools, several people complained that some unix man pages, specifically section 3 (standard library), are missing. For example, if you try:
% man 3 strcmp
and get no man page, you need to follow procedure below:
/Library/Receipts/BSD.pkg/(rename or delete)
- Insert Panther CD 1
- Install BSD package from Optional Packages directory
No reboot is required, and you will now have missing the missing man pages. Verify by trying man 3 strcmp again.
