Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 89913
incorrect information in time(1) man page
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
The man page of time(1) contains the following incorrect statement:
"When command finishes, time writes a message to standard output giving
timing statistics about this program run."
This is incorrect. time writes a message to standard error, not standard output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. strace time date
<time output send to filehandle 2>
I have verified that it writes to standard error, so this should be fixed in
the man-page. Reassigning to the correct rpm (man-pages).
Thanks a lot,
Florian La Roche
