While not the correct way to address your problem, you're quite likely
to find what you need to know in the GCC manual, because many of
CLang's command-line arguments are compatible with GCC.  Also look at
GNU's manuals for the compilers for the individual programming
languages - if you use CLang to build C++, then look at the g++
manual, for example, or third-party books, online tutorials, HOWTOs
and the like for g++.

Every software product needs a good manual, but one cannot simply copy
the GNU manuals into CLangs unless the licenses for both manuals are
compatible, which they are not likely to be.
