BC? Where she be?

Okay, I just noticed something weird. bc has a man page, but it's no where to be found on the filesystem. I need it for some shell scripting I've been doing. Is it one of those things Judd stripped out of Arch, like info?

The bc man page is part of the man-pages package - that's why you can see it without installing the actual app.

bc is a calculator for arbitrary precision

@Penguin: that's odd. When I posted this, pacman was telling me there was no package for bc, and I tried it just now and there is. It's probably those wonderful Penguin powers you possess.

Maybe Penguin got the package to go to extra?? or can it be that you did not do the -y before!
