Package Documentation

The most common media for documentation in Void Linux are manual pages.

Many packages contain documentation in other formats, like HTML. This documentation can usually be found in a /usr/share/doc/<package> directory.

More extensive documentation may be split into separate *-doc packages, such as julia-doc. This is often the case for programming languages, databases and big software libraries.

In addition to documentation provided by upstream projects, packages may also contain description of initial setup or usage specific to Void, provided by distribution contributors. It will be located in /usr/share/doc/<package>/README.voidlinux.
