Description Todd 2009-12-23 20:40:00 EST
CentOS 5.4

Trivial and low priority.  From a posting rdesktop-users@lists.sourceforge.net.  The maintainer of rdesktop (walkerxk) thinks it is your job to maintain the man page.  Would you please update "man rdesktop" to include the "-r clipboard:xxxx" functions?  Typing in "rdesktop" by itself will give you pretty much what you need to update the man page.

Many thanks,

Hi All,

$ rpm -qa \*rdesktop\*

I man be going blind, but I can not find "-r clipboard:CLIPBOARD"
documented on the man page.  And it works really slick too.  I
would have not know about it had I not seen it on another posting.

Many thanks,
If you type "rdesktop" on its own, without any switches, it gives you a great 
list of switches, including this one.  I find this list is more usable than 
the man page.

Chris Roberts.

December 14   
man page is maintain by package maintainer of the distribution, not
the author of rdesktop.

Got a note that this had a pending info request.  Don't actually see one, but I am happy, so I guess ...
