Documentation available as pdf?

The CUDA programmer’s Guide, Best Practices Guide, and Runtime API references appear to be available only as web pages. Do they exist in a form (such as pdf) that I can download to print a hard copy for reading away from my computer?

OOPS… I accidentally discovered half an answer. I was viewing the web page in FireFox. But when I used IE to view it, a line appeared at the top providing a link to a pdf version of the Programmer’s Guide and the Best Practices Guide. Interesting that this link did not appear when I viewed the pages in FireFox! Anyhow, the problem is solved for those two documents. But how about the Runtime API? Thanks!

PDF link is at the top of the page. Also, I believe all these documents are included when you install the CUDA Toolkit under the docs folder.

Vacaloca - Thanks! Now I feel like an idiot… all of the manuals are available in a pdf directory under docs. Sigh. But it is interesting that on the nVidia website, the link to the pdf docs does appear at the top of the page when viewed in Internet Explorer, but the link is not there when viewed in Firefox, which is my main browser.

What version of Firefox are you running? I see the PDF links in Firefox 22 (on OS X).

This PDF reading control may be useful and you will get detailed APIs when using it.

In your cuda toolkit folder you have subfolder doc with pdfs:

With CUDA 5.5 http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/ should have PDFs for all linked documents. I just randomly sampled some documents on that page with IE and FF and all had links to PDF.
