Throughout the Tcl man pages, there are various references to C, which of course will only make sense to the reader if they know C. However, nn expr.n, there is a reference to
"See the C manual for more details on the results [...]".

I don't know whether it would be better to attempt to detail the results here, or to point to a specific topic that one should reference like "See a C programming book's discussions on relational and logical operators for more details [...]"

In a perfect world, there would be enough detail in each of the man pages so that one either could understand the workings, or have a website to reference...

    I see this in two parts:
    1) don't refer to C, refer to mathop(n)
    2) make mathop(n) better
