Man pages - Each time I try get some help from man pages I get disappointed. Wich is the proper way to learn some more from console? If I call --help I just get confused. Am I dummy? I think the first way to learn should be the man pages. I can imagine this is a basic need for a newbie. TIA, Joao.
You're only a beginner for a short while, then a more advanced user for ever.
Material that suits beginners is likely to drive advanced users crazy. These days, I mostly use man pages to clarify some option (eg for tar or mkisofs).
