Scans the javadoc at $path and returns a list of javadocs it is
linked to on the system.
Currently it ignores all javadocs linked via other locations than
/usr/share/doc and it also makes an assumption that the linked
javadoc is in /usr/share/doc/<package>/<dir-or-symlink>. Of course,
all Java Policy compliant packages provide their javadoc from there.
If /usr/share/doc/<package>/<dir-or-symlink> appears to be a symlink,
then it is followed (except for default-jdk-doc).
Consults dpkg(1) to see which packages provides @files and
returns this list. All entries in @files must exists (but is
not required to be files) and should not be used on a directory.
Furthermore all entries must be given with absolute path.
Parses a manifest from $fd, which must be a readable filehandle,
and returns a

something that identifies the source of $fd.
write_manifest_fd($manifest, $fd, $filename)
Writes $manifest to the writable filehandle $fd. $manifest
must be a
$filename is only used to report errors and should be something
that identifies $fd.
