Description of problem:
I've found a trivial format error in Korean man.1.gz
while I'm testing Korean manual environment.

$ zcat /usr/share/man/ko/man1/man.1.gz | nroff -Tnippon -mandoc > /dev/null
<standard input>:226: a magic token is not allowed in a name

There is a string '.../dk/man1/foo.1' in the man page, but
. in line head has special meaning in man page format.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.zcat /usr/share/man/ko/man1/man.1.gz | nroff -Tnippon -mandoc > /dev/null

Actual Results:  '.' is at line head

Expected Results:  '.' should not be at line head.

zcat /usr/share/man/ko/man1/man.1.gz | nroff -Tnippon -mandoc |JLESSCHAR=ko less output

It is the output of :
$ zcat /usr/share/man/ko/man1/man.1.gz | nroff -Tnippon -mandoc |JLESSCHAR=ko

It shows Korean but there are red circled place that are wrong

less of man.1 page

I have gunziped man.1.gz and try to read it with less and now it didn't work...

Comment 4 David Joo 2003-02-11 06:52:52 UTC
Thanks to Nakai, with all the patches for less and groff it seems it is working
quite well.

I still see the magic keys...

Nakai san any suggestion what I should do?
