Bug #5598

man pages are in mdoc format

Added by ro (Rainer Orth) about 9 years ago. Updated almost 9 years ago.

Status:

Priority:
Normal
Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [sparc-solaris2.10]
Backport:
[ruby-core:40844]

Description

Unfortunately, the ruby man pages are in mdoc format (as detected by grog).
The Solaris man/nroff commands cannot deal with that format, rendering the man
pages effectively useless.

Please provide them using only man macros instead so they are universally
useful.
