That's not always true. I personally committed the change in the manual page of sdiff(1) both to -current and -stable, to make sure that the incomplete, lacking manpage has minimal changes from the vendor version but *does* point to the texinfo docs of diff/sdiff which are more complete than the manpage. GNU people do hate manpages annd avoid them some times :( To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
