For example:

c-toggle-electric-state

c-toggle-electric-state is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `cc-cmds.el'.
It is bound to C-c C-l, <menu-bar> <C> <Toggle...> <Electric mode>.
(c-toggle-electric-state &optional ARG)

Toggle the electric indentation feature.
Optional numeric ARG, if supplied, turns on electric indentation when
positive, turns it off when negative, and just toggles it when zero or
left out.


It doesn't tell what the function does.
And the description about ARG is repeated everywhere,
I supposed it's not good.

I agree, but please submit bug reports such as this one to the correct
forum; "M-x report-emacs-bug RET" will do that for you automatically.
Also, please report specifically each case of insufficient
documentation; ``for example'' is not good enough, because Emacs has
thousands of doc strings, and no one can possibly believe that all of
them are bad.


Yes, I should try.
I'm a newbie in Linux.
Thanks.
