Description of problem:
Enter the command "man ruby" for example in a gnome-terminal. Go to the "AUTHORS" section. Then the link in the "See" line will be
[including ")"]. You see this if crossing this line with the mouse. The superfluous closing bracket ")" prevents from opening this URL by using the right mouse button with the "Open link" feature of gnome-terminal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a gnome-terminal
2.Enter: man ruby and navigate to the "AUTHORS" section, and point with the mouse to the "See" line
The selected URL will be "https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby/wiki/Contributors⟩"
No closing bracket at the line end
I don't think I can do anything about this. This seems to be specific to gnome-terminal.
It seems that gnome-terminal does not handle escape sequences correctly. These are steps to reproduce
curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ruby/ruby/trunk/man/ruby.1
groff -mdoc -Tutf8 ruby.1 > ruby.out
You can see that the link is translated into:
where the escape is not handled correctly for some reason.
BTW if you'd like to see this fixed in gnome-terminal, I'd suggest you to report this issue gnome upstream, since I'm afraid it might get lost in Fedora's Bugzilla.
Actually, I went ahead and reported the issue upstream.
Thank you for forwarding. But I think, it's not only a gnome-terminal problem: same issue with the "/usr/bin/konsole" program (belongs to KDE!)
I tried in terminator and it works there. The terminals may share some escape sequence parsing library though. Dunno.
