Ubuntu 12.04...

I had fedora a couple of years back and I saw the man pages for the following there...

standard typedefs (suffixed by "_t") etc

I tried this...

man unistd

But it didn't find it :( I think those pages are not there in Ubuntu Although man stdio works.


  • if Ubuntu doesn't have 'em please tell me how to download them
  • And what is the command for viewing standard typedef man page ie man page for size_t, pid_t, off_t, clock_t etc.

I trid man stddef but not found...


You need to install the manpages-posix-dev package

sudo apt-get install manpages-posix-dev
man unistd.h
