Description

Hello,

This patch updates mandoc to latest version 1.14.3. However, it's my first contribution to any project and I'd like to ask you for feedback. I've tested building and installing it on the latest snapshot and it seems to work. If you approve this, I'll happily send another diff mapping functions from all man.3 pages by MLINKS, and other tweaks.

Regards,

Lubos Boucek

I will look at it.

Can you tell me what man.3 pages MLINKS issues you see? AFAICT they should be in order. I have scripts checking consistency of MLINKS vs. manual pages, but might have missed something.

Hello,

Thanks!

I see, I wasn't sure whether those were generated automatically. Well, there are new man.3 pages now, e.g. mandoc_escape.3, mandoc_malloc.3, etc. So I wanted to write a script to automatically generate MLINKS for them. Or just ask around if there's already a tool for that.

Regards,

As discussed on IRC, this patch contains also MLINKS for hopefully all libmandoc functions.

Thanks, we have since upgraded our mandoc(1) and our man(1) is using it too.
