Fedora Core 3 Update: man-1.5o1-7



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-442
2004-11-30
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : man
Version     : 1.5o1
Release     : 7
Summary     : A set of documentation tools:  man, apropos and whatis.
Description :
The man package includes three tools for finding information and/or
documentation about your Linux system: man, apropos, and whatis. The
man system formats and displays on-line manual pages about commands or
functions on your system. Apropos searches the whatis database
(containing short descriptions of system commands) for a string.
Whatis searches its own database for a complete word.

The man package should be installed on your system because it is the
primary way to find documentation on a Linux system.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

The big change for this release is that man finally correctly formats the
width of the man page to the size of the terminal (or whatever the MANWIDTH
environment variable is set to). Also, color in man pages (found in some
third party man pages) may be disabled with the "-b" option or via a NOCOLOR
directive on the configuration file.
