Description Moritz Barsnick 2004-03-04 16:55:07 EST
Description of problem:
Some garbage from the creation of info files seems to have crept into 
wget's man page.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man wget
Actual results:
Things such as
"uses @} instead of @samp{? to separate the query portion of the"
"@asis<Netscape 4.x.>" (and more "asis"s)

Expected results:

Additional info:
Okay, I know the man page is legacy and the info file is the 
reference.  ;-)  But "man command" is what I always type first when 
in doubt.
Comment 1 Moritz Barsnick 2004-08-29 15:53:09 EDT
Almost fixed in wget-1.9.1-8. There are still three occurences of 
"@pxref" in the man page, sorry. :)
