Tanktalus, I don't know whether to praise you for being able to explain the situation so eloquently, or shame you for failing to notice that there is already an unapplied patch, resulting from 720039.

Maybe both? :-)

Between the mind which plans and the hands which build, there must be a mediator... and this mediator must be the heart.

    getopt/3/linux didn't work (all but "getopt" was ignored, but there may not be a generic "linux" OS selection) and neither did getopt/3/Plan 9 ("Plan 9" appeared in the OS list). And URL encoding of the link description is not ideal.

    Thanks for writing the patch.

    - tye        

      They syntax is

      [man://getopt] [man://getopt(3)] [man://getopt/linux] [man://getopt(3)/linux]
      But clearly we need to clean up how the default link text is rendered. :-)

      Thank you for applying the patch.
