How do I open documentation of the GNU Scientific Library within emacs?

    Which platform are you on? Which format is the documentation in? Debian/Ubuntu provide a package called gsl-doc-info which packages the documentation in Info format, which is very well suited to Emacs. After installing you can then C-h i m gsl-ref RET and browse it. – Basil Feb 2 '18 at 17:02
  • For info files you just need to add the gsl doc directory to Info-directory-list. That should be available: "sphinx is able to produce info output, so we will be providing info files with GSL". You can view the html doc via eww. – Tobias Feb 2 '18 at 17:06
  • @Basil unfortunately I am running OSX. @Tobias I think I will try to get the info files from Sphinx. And thanks did not know about the Info-directory-list – Knowledge Feb 3 '18 at 8:21
