Subject: [PATCH] syscalls.2: ffix (trying to fit the table into 80 columns)
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 16:39:08 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

* man2/syscalls.2 (.SH DESCRIPTION) <\fBgetdtablesize\fP(2)>: Remove "since
Linux 2.0" part for the osf_getdtablesize note, as syscall is generally
available since Linux 2.0; add line break after the word "as".
(.SH DESCRIPTION) <\fBpwrite\fP(2)>: Add line breaks.
(.SH DESCRIPTION) <\fBvm86old\fP(2)>: Add a line break after "in".
