Package: xpdf
Version: 3.04-5
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

Input file is xpdf.1

Test nr. 2: Fix warning from man/groff

<standard input>:221 (macro BI): only 1 argument, but more are expected

chk_manuals: Output is from: test-groff -Tutf8 -b -e -mandoc -rF0 -t -w w -z 


Test nr. 5: Change <number>-<number> to <number>\(en<number> if it is
a numeric range

895:The xpdf software and documentation are copyright 1996-2014 Glyph &


Test nr. 23: Change a HYPHEN-MINUS (code 0x55, 2D) to a dash
(minus) if it matches " -[:alpha:]" or \(aq-[:alpha:] (for options)

696:    bind x "run(ls -l)"


Test nr. 26: Split long lines (> 80).

xpdf.1: line 42 length 81


Test nr. 27: Wrong distance between sentences or protect the indicator.

1) Separate the sentences; each begins on a new line.
See man-pages(7) and "info groff".


2) Adjust space between sentences (two spaces),

3) or protect the indicator by adding "\&" after it.

The "indicator" is an "end-of-sentence character" (.!?).

832:    bind ?              any         about



  have a space around '|', meaning 'or', making it more

  adjust sentences only on the left side in the section "SEE ALSO" to
avoid too long a space between words.


  The patch:
