[cfe-dev] decent manual for clang

It's necessary that we have a full edition of Clang manual even if Clang is compatible with GCC. Do we have one? If not, anybody working on that?

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.
