Re: bin/47701: apropos doesn't work
I notice that the pager gives some odd results. On my primary box, I get this
at the bottom:
wsconsctl (8) get or set wscons state
And then it blanks out my prompt. (via xterm)
Another box I'm ssh'd into via an xterm, gives me a screen full of esc codes.
Also, a strange result, I get less results from "apropos -C8p de", than I do
from "apropos -C8p dev"
I think some of the new matching code is really neat, but I'm completely
confounded by what it does and doesn't find.
