bad grammar in dos2unix man page
Last modified: 2008-09-08 05:01:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The description of the '-n' option in the dos2unix man page contains the following:
"File names must be given in pairs and wildcard names should NOT be used or you WILL lost your files."
The present tense form of "to lose" is "will lose", so the man page should read like this, instead:
"File names must be given in pairs and wildcard names should NOT be used or you WILL lose your files."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man dos2unix
I see a grammatical error.
I see no grammatical error.
This isn't a big deal, but it bugs me every time I see it, and it's something which could be corrected in all of 30 seconds.
BTW, the unix2dos man page has the same problem.
Thanks. Fixed in rawhide.
