in thread Shortcut for man page like [man://uniq]

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.

    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.
