Subject problems in one or more man pages you maintain
Date Tue, 09 Dec 2003 19:29:30 GMT
(My apologies if you get this twice.  My first run of sends had a bug.)

This is automatically generated email about problems in a man page for which
you appear to be responsible.  If you are not the right person or list, tell
me and I will attempt to correct my database.

See for details on how and
why these patches were generated.  Feel free to email me with any questions.

Problems with ab.1:
1. Unbalanced option group in command synopis, You probably forgot
to open or close a [ ] group properly.

2. Spelling, syntax, or usage errors in text.  (I found these while
checking the markup in your page.)

Problems with dbmmanage.1:
1. Dot or single-quote at start of line turns it into a garbage command.
This is a serious error; some lines of your page get silently lost
when it is formatted.

 will simply return nothing, or may create a different DBM file with a
 different name, or at worst, it may corrupt the DBM file if you were
 attempting to write to it.
Problems with rotatelogs.8:
1. Unknown or invalid macro.  That is, one that does not fit in the
macro set that the man page seems to be using.  This is a serious
error; it often means part of your text is being lost or rendered
