Hi all,

I created a set of preliminary man-pages for the GNUstep tools. Comments suggestions and additions highly appreciated.

One little thing I noticed is that the set_show_service command does the enable and disable, but is doesn't do the show. Is this a bug or intentional?

Happy Stepping,

Dennis
