./textproc/mandoc, Convert man pages from mdoc, man, and tbl to txt, html, ps, or pdf

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.14.3, Package name: mandoc-1.14.3, Maintainer: schwarze

The mandoc manual page parser and formatter contains:
* complete validating parsers for the mdoc and man languages
* a slightly incomplete parser handling most of the tbl language
* a very incomplete parser handling a part of the eqn language
* support for a few selected roff requests that often occur in manuals
* complete ASCII, UTF8, HTML and XHTML text output formatters
* simple PostScript and PDF output formatters
* output formatters producing indented mdoc and man parse trees

To format manuals for console display, it can be used as a smaller
and faster drop-in replacement for nroff -mandoc. Some rare manuals
using lots of uncommon low-level roff requests may not work with
mandoc but require a full roff implementation.

Log message:
Updated mandoc to 1.14.3.

Changes in version 1.14.3, released on August 5, 2017

    --- BUG FIXES ---
 * man(7): Do not crash with out-of-bounds read access to a constant
   array if .sp or a blank line immediately precedes .SS or .SH.
 * mdoc(7): Do not crash with out-of-bounds read access to a constant
   array if .sp or a blank line precede the first .Sh macro.
 * tbl(7): Ignore explicitly specified negative column widths rather than
   wrapping around to huge numbers and risking memory exhaustion.
 * man(1): No longer use names that only occur in the SYNOPSIS section.
   Gets rid of some surprising behaviour and bogus warnings.
    --- THANKS TO ---
   Leah Neukirchen (Void Linux), Markus Waldeck (Debian),
   Peter Bui (nd.edu), and Yuri Pankov (illumos) for bug reports.

Changes to mdocml-1.14.1:

Changes in version 1.14.2, released on July 28, 2017

    --- MAJOR NEW FEATURES ---
 * New mdoc(7) -Tmarkdown output mode.
 * For -Thtml, implement internal hyperlinks pointing to authoritative
   definitions of various syntax elements, similar to the ctags(1)-like
   less(1) :t internal searching in terminal mode.
 * Provide a superset of the functionality of the former mdoclint(1)
   utility and a new -Wstyle message level with several new messages,
   including validity checking of .Xr cross references.
 * tbl(7): Implement automatic line breaking inside individual table
   cells, and several other formatting improvements.
 * eqn(7): Complete rewrite of the lexer, resulting in several bugfixes.
 * Continue parser unification, in particular allowing generation
   of syntax tree nodes on the roff(7) level, allowing implementation
   of many additional roff requests.
    --- REMOVED FUNCTIONALITY ---
 * Delete the manpage(1) utility.  It was never enabled in any release.
 * Delete the -Txhtml command line option.  It has been an obsolete
   alias for the -Thtml output mode for more than two years.
    --- MINOR NEW FEATURES ---
 * -Tlint now puts parser messages on stdout instead of stderr,
   making commands like "man -l -Tlint *.1" useful.
 * mdoc(7): Various .Lk formatting improvements.
 * mdoc(7) -Thtml: Better CSS for .Bl lists.
 * man(7): Implement the .MT/.ME block macro (mailto hyperlink).
 * man(7): Implement the .DT macro (restore default tab positions).
 * man(7): Improved support for manuals generated with reStructuredText
   by partial support for the \n[an-margin] number register.
 * man(7) -Thtml: Support deep linking to .SH and .SS headers.
 * tbl(7): Implement the "allbox" table option.
 * tbl(7): Implement the column spacing and the 'w' (minimum column
   width) layout modifiers.
 * tbl(7): Significant improvements of the manual page.
 * eqn(7): Much improved font selection, including recognition of
   well-known function names, and a few other formatting improvements.
 * eqn(7) -Thtml: Use <mn> and <mo> in addition to <mi>.
 * roff(7): Implement the .ce (centering), .mc (margin character),
   .rj (right justify), .ta (define tab stops), .ti (temporary indent),
   .als (macro alias), .ec and .eo (escape character control),
   .po (page offset), and .rn (macro rename) requests.
 * roff(7) .am: Implement appending to mdoc(7) and man(7) macros.
 * roff(7): implement the \h (horizontol motion), \l (horizontal
   line drawing), and \p (break output line) escape sequences,
   and also several additional character escape sequences.
 * roff(7): Implement the 'd' conditional (macro or string defined).
 * man.cgi(8) now uses pledge(2), too.
 * regress.pl(1): simpler user interface, better summary output,
   simpler code, and no more recursion.
