I have been using the -> latelly. As well as . in Python. It seems to
be the programming trend. Do not ask me the theory, nobody has
explained me OO so I know by practicing. :]

I have the PDB, but the PDB does not tell you how to call each
function in each languaje. For example Scheme uses "-" instead of "_",
so you have to translate all names with that rule. It is a rough
guide, but it will be cool if it would give complete info.

Expecting that is too much for any doc.

Unix is not learned easily without the explanation (which normaly
includes jokes) but then is hard to forget. "more" and "less" is one
of the best cases, man pages include some info luckly.
