        LDP  -  Intro to the Linux Documentation Project, with help, guides and
        documents
 

SYNOPSIS

        The Linux Documentation Project (LDP) provides a variety of free  docu‐
        mentation  resources  including  guides, FAQs, HOWTOs, and man-pages to
        the Linux community.
 

AUTHORS

        The various documents in the LDP archives are maintained by  individual
        authors,  and  are  listed in the beginning of each HOWTO.  If you have
        any questions or inputs to a document we encourage you to  contact  the
        authors directly.
        The LDP has its own dedicated web site as do many of the various trans‐
        lations projects which are linked from the main LDP web site at:

        found at:
