man stat - Linux Programmer's Manual
i know that this is a real newbie question to have to ask. but, i can find an answer anywhere :-( .
could someone please tell me. if i am programming in linux and i want to access the 'Linux Programmer's Manual' page for a given C function, but there is also a linux command with the same name (e.g. stat() function and stat command), how do i access the 'Linux Programmer's Manual' page for the function and not the command manual page. as obviously just typing 'man stat' and the command prompt just gives the command manual page.
thanks in advance.
