Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227296
ps manual page has broken formatting
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
Typing "man ps" in man page returns document with indentation
missing below headers. This does not happen with other man
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
type "man ps" in a gnome-terminal or xterm
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "man ps"
ps - report a snapshot of the current processes.
ps displays information about a selection of the active processes. If you want
a repetitive update of the selection and the displayed information, use top(1)
ls - list directory contents
ls [OPTION]... [FILE]...
List information about the FILEs (the current directory by default).
Sort entries alphabetically if none of -cftuvSUX nor --sort.
Yes, the ps man page ignores standard conventions. But I think this should be
fixed by upstream rather that in a distribution.
The upstream maintainer added to CC.
