PS Manpage Formatted Incorrectly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
The manpage for the program "ps" (/usr/share/man/man1/ps.1.gz) is formatted
incorrectly: there is no indentation as is typical of a manpage, making for
rather difficult reading.
ps - report a snapshot of the current processes.
ps ps - report a snapshot of the current processes.
The weird formatting seems to be there because the format specifiers "table"
wouldn't fit well in a standard 80-cols terminal.
I've re-formatted the manpage so only the table is not indented and the rest has
the standard look. It's going to be in the next release.
