Downtime and relocation notice 2008 June 24
The site (revealsystems.net) that hosts this project's web page (battlefieldlinux.com) was destroyed by error in behalf of a repair technitian attempting to fix another site physically adjacent to this site on 2008 June 12. This site was incorrectly identified as the site needing repair by the technitian and all of its data was completely erased by the "repair" which involved an attempt to install a different operating system (Windows 2000).
Corrective actions are pending on the technitian as of this posting.
We are currently regenerating our source and data packages and using wolfsinger.com and savannah.gnu.org as a temporary distribution point. We have not made a decision at this point as to whether to keep this temporary distribution set up or to recreate the set up on battlefieldlinux.com. When a decision is made it will be posted here.

Wow, I found in a side-related manual another one.
One can also start a line with "\&."
Okay, after the usual RTFM stuff apparently a possible way for this is starting the line using \N'046' .
In my current font this will produce the dot I need.
Still open for suggestion tho :)

If you start a line with a dot it doesn't show although the line is present in the manual file. It looks like it is interpreted as a hidden file (e.g. .bashrc) or something... any clues?
How does one start a line with a dot in manedit like:
. <program name>
A \ as 'do nothing with next character' doesn't work and the manual doesn't tell.

Hit the Preview button get see a preview

The editing of manual pages is much like the
editing of web pages, they're based on
what you mean
rather than what you see. It's very
CPU intensive to generate a what you see
output, since every modification needs to be passed through your system's manual groff interpriter
(and that is after converting from
XML to groff format).
It would be nice if it was what-you-see-is-what-you-get.
