I'm using Ubuntu 9 as a virtual machine in Windows XP , so it doesn't have updated man pages for Linux(my machine doesn't support newer versions) . I tried to Google for few man pages that i haven't found in my virtual machine .But, what if there is a network problem?So ,i want man pages for Linux to be available in Windows XP .I tried to get such "application" or "man pages in pdf/html format",but couldn't find any? Please someone give me a solution? I mostly needed man pages for system calls.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
You can download the core man pages for Linux from here. This includes documentation for most POSIX-mandated APIs (including system calls) and for several Linux-specific issues, but not the man pages that come with various utilities.
Quite honestly, it might be simpler to build a more up-to-date VM - having documentation that pertains to newer versions than the software at hand can be quite frustrating...
