Man pages

Not all man-pages are in Alpine, those who are are not readily available after installing man and man-pages, you also need to install mdocml-pages to have man pages built at install time. Below is the quick and easy commandline:

   apk add man man-pages mdocml-pages

a note and reminder on Compiling

Compiling in Alpine may be more challenging because it uses [musl libc] instead of glibc.

(unvalidated) apk packages to install so one can start building software

  apk add build-base gcc
