Subject: mandoc: Delete a sentence pointing to "the Predefined Strings subsection
Date: Sat, 31 Oct 2020 06:45:46 -0500 (EST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Log Message:
Delete a sentence pointing to "the Predefined Strings subsection
of the roff(7) manual."  Such a subsection does not exist, and i
do not see why it should.  Predefined strings are an obsolete 
feature of macro packages, not a feature of the roff language.
