All I know is that's how it's currently set up on my Debian machine,
so I presume that the assumption is that they do.
I guess that if someone is so knowledgeable that they will have
different base files, they will be able to figure out what they're
But we could just leave it.... Just that I know that more than one
person has been confused.
Incidentally, on this theme:
mf(1) doesn't appear to refer to mfw
the tbl table in mf(1) doesn't format; the error message is:
/usr/bin/tbl:/tmp/zman73chih:147: `.' not last character on line
/usr/bin/tbl:/tmp/zman73chih:147: giving up on this table
Not being a tbl programmer, I don't quite know what this means...
