Try the command 'texdoc' in the terminal (without the quotes) with as 
an arghument the name of the package or sty file that you want to find 
documentation for. It locates any documentation that it can find the 
system en local texmf trees and opens it for you. In the case at hand, 

texdoc rotating

in the terminal opens the pdf file rotating.pdf in TeXShop on my system.

This feature was introduced in Gerben's teTeX distribution some time 
ago; if your installation is old, it may not work. (But then it might 
provide a good reason to upgrade ;-)
