I was trying to read about how to make gcc compile C code to plain assembly for a bootloader, but when I tried to read the man pages there were none!

$ man gcc
No manual entry for gcc
See 'man 7 undocumented' for help when manual pages are not available.
$

I tried to remove and then reinstall it, but without luck. I'm on debian 6.0.3 and gcc 4.4.5

Thanks

The documentation isn't in the "gcc" package, it's in a separate package called "gcc-doc".
