Description Nurdin Premji 2007-01-31 20:39:09 UTC
For the command line utilities: fstack, ftrace, fstep, fcatch and fcore: The SEE
ALSO sections need to be update to include all the other programs for each program.

Also some of the command line utilities refer to themselves in the
description/name portions.
Example: "fstack runs frysk fstack stack tracing utilitiy" should not have
second fstack.

Also some example sections only have the command in them. Should also have the
arguments that must be passed.
Comment 1 Andrew Cagney 2007-01-31 20:56:36 UTC
The split between downstream frysk and frysk-devel rpms is artificial so not of
concern here.  Having references to components that can't be used, e.g., libc
functions from user commands is common.

Perhaps, though, downstream should include all man pages in the frysk rpm so
that at least following references is possible.

Not a bug for here.
Comment 2 Nurdin Premji 2007-01-31 21:15:13 UTC
I meant that the utilities are not consistent in the other tools that they
mention in the SEE ALSO section. Usually newer tools will mention older tools
but not vice versa.
