Description Chris 2012-06-16 16:10:06 UTC
Man page for iasl(8) is missing options that are present in /usr/sbin/iasl

/usr/sbin/iasl is:

$FreeBSD: release/9.0.0/usr.sbin/acpi/iasl/iasl.8 179153 2008-05-20 12:07:02Z rpaulo $

Fix: Attached patch.

Note I've corrected the options and updated the version of the compiler to 4.0a.

Some things to check because I don't know enough:

-T: Is Sig the correct term?
-da: Is the format in the Synopsis right (table,table,...) , is the format in the options list right (f1,f2)
-e: same as -da

Apart from updating the version of the compiler I haven't changed the description, it might not be correct any more.

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Run command
# iasl -h

Compare output to
# man 8 iasl.
