"You could use commands like crash to get the
information : This can be a great way to find out the information
you need. By typing "crash -h BLARG" you should, theoretically, get
a dump of all the help information you need. Unfortunately, not all
distro's of Linux and Unix include it by default and not all
distros' versions of crash operate the same. Some require you to be
proficient in running a debugger against a dump file, afterward.
Way too much hassle."
