Add to your soap-box: the standard 'man' is disregarded, you are left to use (non-standard) info.

There's a man -k call, I haven't found an info -k equivalent.

Yes, there's a great calling for thankless man page writing in the *nix world.

Grrrrrrrrrrr, 1 of my *long time* complaints w/ Linux (any Linux, 
apparently) is that nobody bothers to keep 
man-pages/FAQS/other-documentation up to date. The cron(8) on my SuSE 
9.2 P4 is dated 1996 (!!!). I lay this at the feet of the distro folks 
myself, but none of them have taken it up :-) ....
