Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 502120
All of the manpages in netpbm-progs appear to be merely textual, rather than troff source
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:36:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Minor issue: all of the manpages in netpbm-progs are plain text, rather than troff macros.
for f in `rpm -ql netpbm-progs | grep /man/` ;
echo $f; gunzip -c $f | file - ;
Looking at the manpages, either directly through "man", or via "gunzip -c $file | less" it looks like all of them have been already processed with troff, and the resulting text had been packaged.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
As above; for instance: man /usr/share/man/man1/pamx.1.gz
- manpages have already been processed with troff; they appear without any emboldening on a tty that can handle it
- manpages should contain troff macros
(related to bug 204991 ?)
Sounds like it should be fixed in current netpbm release.
