Where can I get the man pages for mwm

Where can I get the man pages for mwm

I'm working with Lesstif (that' s a Motif clone, which I found on the
net), however there is something that is bugging me, so I would like to
get my hands on the man pages of mwm to configure my system. Is there
anybody out there who knows where to find them.




1. mwm man page problems in SWIM Motif

I have just installed the ELF version of SWIM on top of my Slackware
3.0 distribution, and have run into two kinds of problems with the
formatting of the mwm man page.  

All of the lists and much of the highlighting are messed up, because
the GNU .an macro apparently doesn't implement some of the required
macros.  I have fixed this with these substitutions:

        .LI -> .IP
        \*L -> \fB
        \*O -> \fP
        \*V -> \fI

One way to do this is as follows:

        # cd /usr/X11/man/man1
        # mv mwm.1X mwm-orig.1X
        # sed -e s/^.LI/.IP/ \
              -e s/\\\*L/\\fB/g \
              -e s/\\\*O/\\fP/g \
              -e s/\\\*V/\\fI/g \
              mwm-orig.1X >mwm.1X

However, formatting still generates errors like this:

       924: warning: can't break line
       error: page 13: table will not fit on one page; use .TS H/.TH with a
       supporting macro package

...and the corresponding tables are missing.  I don't know enough roff
to fix this.  Just Computers! has not been able to help.  I would
appreciate any suggestions.
