Description Jón Fairbairn 2009-05-27 19:12:44 UTC
Description of problem:
In the man page for pbmtext there is a table of characters that is intended to be used to make fonts for pbmtext. It's the whole ASCII set, so there should be a backslash (\) between the "[" and the "]", but the source for the manpage only has a single backslash, so it doesn't appear in the table. Results in off-by one output for fonts generated by xwd'ing the man page output (or cut and paste from the manpage for that matter).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using F9, but grabbed netpbm-progs-10.35.62-1.fc11.x86_64.rpm
and looked at the man page from that.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man pbmtext
2. scroll down to the "PBM Font" header
3. look at the character table
  
Actual results:
           M ’,/^_[‘jpqy| M

           /  !’#$%&’()*+ /
           < ,-./01234567 <
           > 89:;<=>?@ABC >
           @ DEFGHIJKLMNO @
           _ PQRSTUVWXYZ[ _
           { ]^_‘abcdefg {
           } hijklmnopqrs }
           ~ tuvwxyz{|}~  ~

           M ’,/^_[‘jpqy| M


Expected results:

           M ',/^_[`jpqy| M

           /  !"#$%&'()*+ /
           < ,-./01234567 <
           > 89:;<=>?@ABC >
           @ DEFGHIJKLMNO @
           _ PQRSTUVWXYZ[ _
           { \]^_`abcdefg {
           } hijklmnopqrs }
           ~ tuvwxyz{|}~  ~

           M ',/^_[`jpqy| M
