I've used the historical manpages -- especially 7th Edition and 4.3
Reno -- for years, thanks. Today I'm reading the 4.3 Reno page diff3(1),
. It has a problem I've seen in some other pages (but not reported before):
some small bits of text are missing.
For instance, the second paragraph of DESCRIPTION begins like this:
Options are: Produces output in a form suitable as an input script for
the ed(1) utility.
Which option does that describe? It doesn't say. Another example is
in the FILES section:
temporary files. the executable.
I think that section should include /tmp/XXX and /usr/bin/diff3, or something.
I'm guessing that there's a macro call which isn't being read or handled
by the man-to-html converter. For instance, the missing -e option might
have been coded as:
How-To-Repeat: Open the manual page I mentioned in Firefox 126.96.36.199, or probably in other browsers too.
