The `.int' files are not really ideal for human consumption.  For
starters, they have all the comments removed.  So it's generally a
better idea to run mtags on the library source files rather than on
the `.int' files.  That way, when you use the tag to jump to the
declaration of a library routine, you can immediately see the
documentation of the library routine.

The library source files are available in the Mercury source distribution.
