Description Joshua Jensen 2002-09-13 04:14:49 UTC
Description of Problem:

I used to be able to search for switches like "-m" by typing:

/-m <enter>

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

stock Psyche, pre re-spin

How Reproducible:

"man" anything, and try to search for something that begins with "-"

Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-01-14 05:03:01 UTC
workaround for this is as follows (changing component to groff):

(to be added in man.local and
mdoc.local) until programs can handle Unicode hyphens correctly:

.if '\*[.T]'utf8' \
.  char \- \N'45'

Comment 3 Florian La Roche 2003-01-14 10:46:23 UTC
This has dropped through in earlier rpms, but should finally be gone in
1.18.1-6 or newer. (I might have tested in screen only... Buah...)
