Description Ronny Buchmann 2001-05-05 15:48:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3 i686)

Description of problem:
i used to display manpages outside $MANPATH with the option -l or
--local-file, this doesn't work in RedHat 7.1 and RawHide

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man -l /anypath/samplemanpage.1

Actual Results:  man: invalid option -- l
man, version 1.5h

Expected Results:  displaying the formatted file

Additional info:

the german man(1) (from manpages_de), describes the option --local-file
the original english doesn't

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-05 22:17:12 UTC
The German man page is listing an obsolete option - recent versions of man 
automatically recognize filenames (man /path/file.1 will work).

Reassigning to man-pages-de, the option should be removed from the man page.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-05-31 23:06:19 UTC
Fixed in man-pages-de-0.3-1
