Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-05-15 03:46:51 EDT
Description of problem:

Do 'man perldoc'.  The man page shows raw POD directives:

SYNOPSIS
           B<perldoc> [B<-h>] [B<-D>] [B<-t>] [B<-u>] [B<-m>] [B<-l>] [B<-F>]
               [B<-i>] [B<-V>] [B<-T>] [B<-r>]
               [B<-dI<destination_file>>]
               [B<-oI<formatname>>]
               [B<-MI<FormatterClassName>>]
               [B<-wI<formatteroption:value>>]
               [B<-n>I<nroff-replacement>]
               [B<-X>]
               [B<-L> I<language_code>]
               PageName|ModuleName|ProgramName|URL

       Examples:

           B<perldoc> B<-f> BuiltinFunction

           B<perldoc> B<-L> it B<-f> BuiltinFunction
etc.

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

perl-Pod-Perldoc-3.17-1.fc17.noarch

How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man perldoc
Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2012-05-15 04:29:22 EDT
Some POD formatting sequences are not translated into roff sequences. The synopsis section is affected only.
Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2012-05-15 04:35:21 EDT
F18--17 affected.
Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2012-05-15 04:54:43 EDT
This is bug in perldoc.pod source:


=head1 SYNOPSIS

    B<perldoc> [B<-h>] [B<-D>] [B<-t>] [B<-u>] [B<-m>] [B<-l>] [B<-F>]


Here the `B<perldoc>...' text is preceded with a literal space which denotes the paragraph a verbatim paragraph where none POD sequences are interpreted.
Comment 4 Petr Pisar 2012-05-15 07:00:43 EDT
Fixed as perl-Pod-Perldoc-3.17-2.fc18 in F18.
