Subject: mandoc: Tedu support for the -xsh4.2 argument to the mdoc(7) .St macro
Date: Thu, 13 Jan 2022 03:42:45 -0500 (EST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Log Message:
Tedu support for the -xsh4.2 argument to the mdoc(7) .St macro
because all of the following hold:
* It is an alias for a part of an ancient standard that is no longer important.
* To refer to that old standard, -xpg4.2 is readily available and portable.
* It is unused in OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and NetBSD.
* Groff never supported it.

I agreed with G. Branden Robinson that deleting this from mandoc
is preferable to adding it to groff.
