gcc man pages not found under Solaris 10

Hi friends,
When I try to see the man pages of gcc,

man gcc

I see

No manual entry for gcc.

Could you help me please. I am running solaris 10

# 2  
Make sure gcc is installed on your system .

which gcc

# 3  
gcc is installed, I am using it to compile my programs. The problem is that I cannot see it's manual pages.
# 4  
chances are that manual pages are not installed on your system .
you can get them online .

GCC online documentation - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)
# 5  
Are the gcc pages in your MANPATH variable?


You need to add them. If you got gcc from sunfreeware.com, then the man pages live in /usr/local/share/man ....
Else with base install they are in /usr/sfw/share/man/
