Yes, that is because in today's day and age, most answers to "more mature" technological questions (like UNIX and Linux, which have been around for a long time), already exist somewhere on the net.

As I mentioned earlier, the issue is that there is an abundant of knowledge on the net and that knowledge continues to explode, so a much higher percentage of people can get the answers they seek from search (especially for mature technologies) versus asking questions and waiting for as answer or, as you mentioned, the need to interact with others.

That's the normal progression of the rise of the information-based global society.

docidx_lang_faq - docidx language faq DESCRIPTION
WHAT IS THIS DOCUMENT? This document is currently mainly a placeholder, to be filled with commonly asked questions about the docidx markup language and compan- ions, and their answers. Please report any questions (and, if possible, answers) we should consider for this document in the category doctools of the Tcllib SF Trackers []. EXAMPLES
WHERE DO I FIND DOCIDX EXAMPLES? We have no direct examples of documents written using docidx markup. However the doctools processor dtplite does generate keyword indices when processing a set of documents written in doctools markup. The intermediate files use docidx markup and are not deleted when generation completes. These files can therefore serve as examples. dtplite is distributed as part of Tcllib, so to get it you need one of [1] A CVS snapshot of Tcllib. How to retrieve such a snapshot and the tools required for this are described at http://source- [2] A Tcllib release archive. They are available at BUGS, IDEAS, FEEDBACK This document, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems. Please report any such in the category doctools of the Tcllib SF Trackers []. Please also report any ideas for enhancements you may have for either the package and/or the documentation. SEE ALSO
