For the most complete documentation, don't rely on the man pages; use
the texinfo documentation instead (also available online). (However,
this particular bit of info may be found in the man page as well.)

This is generally true for most GNU software (and is mentioned by the
manpage, though perhaps it could be made more prominent).
