Hope this will help; this is my understanding of the situation

GCG documentation.....

If you have a GCG site license, then you can print your own copies, using the
GCG program red...

The command is something like

unix% red -outfile=command_name.ps gendocsource:command_name.red

Alternatively, you can purchase additional copies from gcg for approx 200
dollars (USA).  Try help at gcg.com for more information.

Okay, there are aslso available online sources, here is a copy of my gcg html
