From: Abhinav Upadhyay <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: Thomas Klausner <email@example.com> Subject: Mandoc Not Parsing Sy Macro (In some cases) Date: Mon, 9 Jan 2017 16:06:43 +0530 [thread overview] Message-ID: <CAHwRYJkz-iANNhLsj1C+UtaKf8Vt+-vmmYbZDmjxGcmJxme4Uw@mail.gmail.com> (raw) Hi Ingo, In NetBSD's sysctl(7) man page, we noticed an issue where in some tables the Sy macro was not being parsed and being rendered literally as "Sy". While in other places it was being parsed correctly. On looking closely, we realized that in the cases where Sy was not being parsed, we were using <TAB> instead of Ta macro, like this: .It Sy Second level name Sy Type Sy Changeable Which is being rendered as: Second level name Sy Type Sy Changeable Whereas in the places where it was being rendered correctly, we were using Ta, like this: It Sy Name Ta Sy Constant Ta Sy Next level names Ta Sy Description I think this issue was not present in the previous version of mandoc, It has been noticed only with the latest release. - Abhinav -- To unsubscribe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
