The /usr/share directory contains architecture-independent shareable text files. The contents of this directory can be shared by all machines, regardless of hardware architecture.
In a mixed architecture environment, the typical diskless client mounts one server directory over its own /usr directory and then mounts a different directory over the /usr/share directory. The files below the /usr/share directory are contained in one or more separately installable packages. Thus, a node may have the other parts of the /usr directory it depends on locally installed while using a server to provide the /usr/share directory.
Some of the files in the /usr/share directory include the directories and files shown in the /usr/share Directory diagram.
The /usr/share directory includes the following:
|/usr/share/man||Contains the manual pages if they have been loaded.|
|/usr/share/dict||Contains the spelling dictionary and its indexes.|
|/usr/share/info||Contains the InfoExplorer database files.|
|/usr/share/lib||Contains architecture-independent data files, including terminfo, learn, tmac, me, and macros.|
|/usr/share/lpp||Contains data and information about optionally installable products on the system.|
