Note: This question could possibly fit as a question on a main site somewhere, whether stack overflow, user experience or somewhere else. I'm asking it here because: (a) I don't know where else it would fit, and (b) The primary reason I want to know is to improve my answering abilities on this site.
Linking to man pages
I already have a favored method for this, which you can read about in the
less man page in two places:
LESS='+/\+cmd' man less
LESS='+/LESS[[:space:]]*Options' man less
(See what I did there?)
Linking to websites
Some websites, such as the wooledge Bash guide, have little "table of contents" at the top which allows you to easily link to a very specific part of the page:
Other pages such as the POSIX specifications don't have such an easy interface for linking, but it is still possible:
Notice that the tag name at the end of the URL is much less human-readable on the POSIX site than the tags in the Bash guide:
http://....#Aliases vs. http://....#tag_18_09_02
Other websites contain info that I would like to be able to link to directly, but it may be buried far down on the page with no obvious way to link directly to it. For instance, The Art of Unix Programming is full of excellent material, but I don't know of any way to link with any finer granularity than a whole page:
Is there a way to construct a link with a tag that will take users to an arbitrarily specific point on the page?
If not, how can I see what tags have been included by the creator of the website so that I can link directly to a specific point on the page?
