mkbootdisk man page roff source has slight syntax error
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
In mkbootdisk's man page, there is a slight syntax error in the
roff source. Therefore, a certain line renders as
"Uses ize (in kilobytes)".
Note the two spaces and missing 's'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man mkbootdisk
2. Look for the description of the "--size" argument.
"Uses ize (in kilobytes) as the size of " ...
"Uses size (in kilobytes) as the size of " ...
Also, emphasis (inverse, bright, bold, italics, whatever your
man pager thinks is appropriate) is also wrong.
The source reads:
Uses \fsize\fR (in kilobytes) as the size of the image to use for the
and should probably read:
Uses \fBsize\fR (in kilobytes) as the size of the image to use for the
Uses \fIsize\fR (in kilobytes) as the size of the image to use for the
(haven't checked, I'm not a roff expert).
Thanks for listening,
