This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has detailed documentation in the manual; see below.


The extensive manual of FreeFem++ is written in LaTeX and it is available in Postscript format in /usr/share/doc/freefem++/ on your hard disc.


This manual page was written by Christophe Trophime <>, for the Debian project (but may be used by others).
