RTFM Read The F***ing Manual
RTFM Read the F**king Manual This is a very unpleasant response from even more unpleasant people when asked a question. Yes, there are questions that can be answered very quickly by referring to the manual. And, yes, more often than not it would be good for you to learn how to reference the manual. However, in my experience more often than not the idiot that says RTFM does not actually know the answer. A better response might be TFC. See below.
