would be good, though I realised that for programs,
like squid (whose cygwin port does not even seem to
work, but there is a windows port).. One is expected
to go online for the documentation!  So I consider an
internet connection somewhat mandatory -

I have typed "man which", at google. I did notice that
cygwin had no man or info page for which.

on a related note- i also check
/usr/share/doc , since programs can put documentation
there, and furthermore, that documentation is
different, not conforming to the strict man page

I guess there is no excuse for a simple thing like a
man page to not be installed - available offline. Even
a large man page is small enough, and this is a small
man page.
