Description David Kovalsky 2007-03-20 08:08:16 EDT
Description of problem:
There's an extra space before a period (end of sentence) on a few lines.
# man dhclient
       dhclient to work on IBM zSeries z/OS Linux guests .

       The  -B  option  instructs dhclient to set the bootp broadcast flag in
       request packets, so that servers will always broadcast replies .  This
       is  equivalent  to  specifying  the ’bootp-broadcast-always’ option in
       dhclient.conf, and has the same effect  as  specifying  ’always-broad-
       cast’  in  the  server’s dhcpd.conf.  This option is provided as a Red
       Hat extension to enable dhclient to work on  IBM  zSeries  z/OS  Linux
       guests .

You can use '/ \.' to search in man.
