That's pretty much how it would appear, but the manpage linter would emit 'hyphen-used-as-minus-sign' as historically those were treated differently. I can't say for certain if it's still misinterpreted anywhere, but I figured I'd forward the patch in case it is relevant. >> In addition to thepatch below, it looks like you have an excess backslash >> in the example given, > > No, that backslash is part of the target file's syntax, and is correct. Ah, my apologies!

As it stands, Debian is in freeze for the next stable release so nothing would be moving forward right this moment anyway. ~Unit 193 Unit193 @ freenode Unit193 @ OFTC
