Description Rich Morin 2002-04-02 03:12:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.13; Mac_PowerPC)

Description of problem:

Typing "man builtins" generates the error
"<standard input>:14: realpath on `bash.1' failed: No such file or directory"

This seems to be caused by the fact that builtins.1.gz contains
the line ".so bash.1", but there is no such file (only bash.1.gz).
My suspicion is that man(1) can handle a ".so" line when it is
the only line in the file, but has problems when there is some
preceding troff text (i.e., I think some kludge is incomplete. :-).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1.man builtins




Actual Results:  <standard input>:14: realpath on `bash.1' failed: No such 
file or directory

BASH_BUILTINS(1)                                 BASH_BUILTINS(1)


       bash,  :,  .,  alias,  bg, bind, break, builtin, case, cd,

       command, continue, declare, dirs,  disown,  echo,  enable,


Expected Results:  The man page for bash(1) should have followed the 
page I saw.
