User:Vadmium/Man pages

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

List of man-page-like articles, redirects and more substantial articles they could be integrated into. These are often closely related to a language, library or other platform, and take the name of a keyword, token or other identifier rather than an English name.

I am not suggesting all of these article be merged somewhere; so far this is just a brainstorm to visualise the situation. The category headings could correspond to Wikipedia categories, articles, or sections of articles. Vadmium (talk, contribs).

  • italics: redirects that never were articles
  • dagger†: deleted content which may have been an article
  • struck out: articles that I am happy have been merged elsewhere. Vadmium (talk, contribs).

Many of the pages here have been moved to Wikibooks. This is not to say that all pages should be redirected in Wikipedia, just that there are stubs that can be turned into useful tutorials at Wikibooks.
