Not all the functions have man pages in cygwin - volunteers are welcome to
help write some. Having said that, the web is your friend - most of the
cygwin syscalls are modeled after Linux, so looking at Linux man pages is
usually a good start (although not always accurate on cygwin); also POSIX
and SUSv3 are freely available standards on the web, with pretty good
descriptions of what a portable implementation will do.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
