it would be great if you could create a link which points to this:


Unfortunately the "#ServerAliveInterval" part does not work. You can only create
a link to the man-page, not "ServerAliveInterval".

the matching nroff source is here:


I think a lot of HTML versions of man pages would benefit, if you could
create pointing to "ssh_config.5#ServerAliveInterval"

Of course above is just an example. This should work for all man pages, not for
ssh_config only.

My background: I see a lot of answers at the Q+A site serverfault.com where
the user copy+pastes snippets from man pages.

It would be much better if you could create a link to the matching definition.

Here is the nroff snippet:

.It Cm ServerAliveInterval
Sets a timeout interval in seconds after which if no data has been received
from the server,

I have no clue how nroff works. I guess it is not easy to implement.

What do you think?
