Bug reference: 2009
Logged by: Martin Pitt
Email address: martin(at)piware(dot)de
PostgreSQL version: 8.0.4
Operating system: Linux
Description: Unqouted dashes in manpages
The PostgreSQL manpages currently do not quote the dash (they contain '-'
instead of '\-', as mandated by manpages). Since this produces a different
Unicode character than an quoted dash, these manpages look a bit weird on
some locale/terminal combinations, and worse, you cannot search for options
without actually figuring out how to enter the unicode narrow hyphen
character on your keyboard.
At least the hyphens used in verbatim text (as in option names) should be
properly quoted. Dashes in some combined words are probably ok.
Thanks for considering,
