man-db 2.6.1-2ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


man-db (2.6.1-2ubuntu1) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Avoid fatal errors when opening a 64-bit GDBM database from a 32-bit
    process (LP: #1001189).
  * Link with -Wl,--enable-new-dtags, so that LD_LIBRARY_PATH can be used to
    override our private library directory.  (This fixes a build failure
    when attempting to build the above change.)

 This package provides the man command, the primary way of examining the
 on-line help files (manual pages). Other utilities provided include the
 whatis and apropos commands for searching the manual page database, the
 manpath utility for determining the manual page search path, and the
 maintenance utilities mandb, catman and zsoelim. man-db uses the groff
 suite of programs to format and display the manual pages.
