Description Sean Stangl 2007-06-20 00:58:45 EDT
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 [options]

should be:

       ps ps - report a snapshot of the current processes.

       ps [options]

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.
