    as the manual says

    1) It is not necessary to do it, as the manual says.

    Does this mean:
    a) The manual says you have to do it, but it is not necessary

    or
    b) The manual says you don't have to do it, and you don't.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: as the manual says

    It means (b).
    But it's perhaps inadvisable to construct it like that because it could easily be misunderstood.

    As the manual says, it is not necessary to do it. Would that be clearer?
