Description Jan Pokorný 2013-06-26 10:48:45 EDT
Example (note: patch [1] was already applied, but conceptually the
same without it):

$ cd fence-agents
$ { ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make;} &>/dev/null || echo failed
$ man --warnings=w -l fence/agents/drac5/fence_drac5.8 2>&1 >/dev/null
> <standard input>:37: bad argument name `)'
> <standard input>:196: bad argument name `)'

$ sed -n -e '37p' -e '196p' fence/agents/drac5/fence_drac5.8
> Force command prompt (Default Value: \$)
> Force command prompt (Default Value: \$)

When this is changed to (i.e., doubled backslashes):
> Force command prompt (Default Value: \\$)
warnings are not longer emitted while the man page itself remains displayed

Presumably, this is something to be handled in fence2man.xsl template.
