Description Moritz Barsnick 2003-03-03 03:21:16 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):


mkbootdisk-1.5.1-1




How reproducible:


always




Steps to Reproduce:


1. man mkbootdisk


2. Look for the description of the "--size" argument.


3.


    


Actual results:


"Uses  ize (in kilobytes) as the size of " ...




Expected results:


"Uses size (in kilobytes) as the size of " ...




Additional info:




Also, emphasis (inverse, bright, bold, italics, whatever your


man pager thinks is appropriate) is also wrong.




The source reads:




--snip--


.TP


\fB-\-size \fIsize\fR


Uses \fsize\fR (in kilobytes) as the size of the image to use for the


--snip--




and should probably read:


--snip--


Uses \fBsize\fR (in kilobytes) as the size of the image to use for the


--snip--


or


--snip--


Uses \fIsize\fR (in kilobytes) as the size of the image to use for the


--snip--




(haven't checked, I'm not a roff expert).




Thanks for listening,


Moritz
