Description Jim Toth 2001-08-08 15:35:35 EDT
Description of Problem:

The man page states
"The    exact   definition   of   the   time   specification   can   be   
found   in       /usr/doc/at-3.1.7/timespec."

In fact, /usr/share/doc/at-3.1.8/timespec is where it can be found.  
Also, ideally, the sentence should be rephrased (in a less clumsy manner 
than I just did) so that it doesn't end a sentence (so cut and paste can 
be used).

How Reproducible: Every Time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man at
2. Line 61 (in an 80 column window)

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-06-01 23:35:02 EDT
This is fixed in at_3.1.8-11, and should fixed shortly
when "at" is updated to it.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-06-02 21:10:56 EDT
Actually this has been fixed since 3.1.8-21.
