Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26212
ms(7) manpage missing; groff_ms incomplete
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:12 EDT
groff emulates the traditional UNIX troff and nroff environment. One part
is the -ms macro package. The only ms documentation provided is groff_ms(7)
which explains the differences from ms(7) and tells the reader to read
ms(7). RHL7.0 does not include ms(7). Please add it.
I read ms(7) from an old Solaris manual. It documented a number register
PD. PD does not exist in groff's ms, nor is it documented as a
difference. This issue came up because I was porting a document
If you know a good source for ms documentation, please open a new
bugzilla report with an URL for it. I am more than happy to
extend the docu beyond the info files etc.
It looks as if the traditional documentation is copyright Bell Labs
and AT&T. It would probably be good to mention this in the See Also
section of groff_ms(7). The man pages can be found on the web. For
