On HP-UX 10.00 and later, the /usr/share/doc directory contains HP-UX
release notes and technical whitepapers.  Most of the documents are in
ASCII text format.  On 10.x, some of the documents are in PCL format.  On
10.x and 11.00, several of the documents are in PostScript format.  And on
11.11, a few of the documents are in PDF format.

The text (.txt) files can be readily viewed using a variety of viewers
(more, pg, vi, etc..).  The PCL, PostScript, and PDF files are meant to
be printed out, not viewed online.  In order to view them online, you
would need to install third-party applications such as GhostScript and
GhostView.  You would also need to have a graphical display and have an
X server running.

Hewlett Packard Printer Control Language (.pcl) files can be printed on
any HP printer.  If you have a non-HP printer, you can use GhostScript,
or a number of other programs, to convert the PCL to PostScript.

PostScript (.ps) files can be printed on any printer that supports
PostScript  However, it is not necessary to have a PostScript-compatible
printer.  There are public domain programs, for example, GhostScript, that
can convert PostScript to other printer languages, such as PCL.

To print Portable Document Format (.pdf) files, download and install
Adobe[R] Acrobat[R] Reader (see question 8.35).  Alternatively, you can
use GhostScript to convert from PDF to PostScript or PCL.

Now that you know how to view and print the documents, here is a listing
of the documents you'll find in /usr/share/doc on 11.00, 11.11, and 10.20:

In 11.11, HP has removed most of the whitepapers from /usr/share/doc/ and
recommends viewing up-to-date versions of the documents on
<http://docs.hp.com/> instead.  Nonetheless, there are still a number of
useful documents in /usr/share/doc/:
