comment The “man” pages are not very well laid out or even helpful at times, alternatives?
Oh and if you write a realman utility, I propose you call it layman - real men (and women of course) use man :D

comment The “man” pages are not very well laid out or even helpful at times, alternatives?
The keywords are stated in mans manpage: ...on-line reference manual.... Manpages are not meant to be a tutorial, but a reference of all capabilities. Yes, it can be quite overwhelming (man gcc anyone?), but it is an invaluable comprehensive ressource that is easily accessible, no matter if you're connected to the internet or not. I agree however that many manpages lack useful examples (the manpage of find is an exception that comes to my mind).

comment trying to use sshfs on ubuntu
The mount point must be writeable by the user and empty. For the sake of testing, create a new mount point mkdir ~/mnttest and run sshfs -o sshfs_debug -p 22 root@10.14.5.182:/ ~/mnttest

comment trying to use sshfs on ubuntu
Can you really write to the mountpoint? Could you try it? What's the output of ls -ld /home/cp/Documents/cadev01 (or whatever mount point you're using now...)?

comment Why does ls -l output a different size from ls -s?
Metadata about files is stored in inodes. Each file system has a limited amount of inodes it can use. To see how many free inodes a file system has and the size of them: sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sdaX|grep Inode, or df -i for all partitions.
