Where's the Books?!

Looking for a manual that used to be on docs.sun.com but can't find it any more?

Best way to find it is to use a site-directed Google search. All the docs at Oracle are under download.oracle.com.

So say you're looking for the Solaris Linkers & Libraries manual. Put this into a Google search box:

site:download.oracle.com  "Linkers and Libraries"

and here's what you get.

(Fixed links.)

Comments:

It works better if you use

site:download.oracle.com "Linkers and Libraries"

(ie. in the singular, there is no site downloads.oracle.com). Your query

site: downloads.oracle.com "Linkers and Libraries"

(a space after the site: ) is something else again

Ack! Thanks for noticing. I fixed the links.

"YAY". Breaking 5 years worth of collected links and references and the best response is "google it".
Not impressed.

Absorbing tens of thousands of documents from docs.sun.com into download.oracle.com has been a massive undertaking. Apparently the infrastructure is not able to accommodate hundreds of thousands of redirects (links to books, chapters, sections, book to book, etc). It will take many months to sort out. It's ongoing. I'm amazed that it all made it over without too much difficulty.
