browse kernel code with cscope, man page

When browse kernel source with cscope, say DECLARE_WAIT_QUEUE_HEAD,
it returns #deine(s)in many files, how do I know which one is actually

when doing app programming, man/info is a good command-line help
for, say functions, descriptions. but I could not get the same
man page for functions of kernel source. Is it not installed on
my system or is there alternative way of getting same kind of help
for kernel?


1. Standard man pages to "Catted" man pages!

To Anyone Interested:

        How does one take a standard "troff"ed (?) man page that comes
with a package off the net (ending in .1, .2, etc) and turn in into a
compressed, "cat"ted man page (ending in .1.Z, .2.Z, etc) that are
stored in the directory /usr/man/catN (N = 1,2,3,...) that can be read
by the standard man utility that comes with the SLS distribution?  I'm
sure that this is trivial to do, and is probably written down
SOMEWHERE, but I've got only so many hours a day I can spend reading
FAQs and HOWTOs.  Thanx in advance...
