Description Dale Lovelace 1999-07-29 02:34:36 UTC
/usr/doc/ipchains-1.3.8/HOWTO.txt is full of ^H's making very difficult to read

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-29 14:57:59 UTC
Hm... views OK with less here. Do you have LESSCHARSET
or any locale settings set (yes, the ^H's are there, but
it's legible here)?

As a note, it looks like it was probably generated by
sgmltools from HOWTO.sgml, so that might be where the bug is.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-23 19:24:59 UTC
Fixed in ipchain-1.3.9-2.
