wiki:CheckManualPages

Version 8 (modified by Randy McMurchy, 15 years ago) ( diff )

Added some packages to the "install UTF-8 man pages" section

Manual pages in BLFS

LFS expects that manual pages are in the language-specific (usually 8-bit) encoding, as specified on http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/6.2/chapter06/man-db.html. All BLFS manual pages have to be audited that they conform to that standard. See the automated checking procedure in Ticket #2102.
