Re: Removing /usr/share/misc/operator? or operator(7)?

My point exactly. I didn't even suspect there was mdoc.samples(7), but I know
there's mdoc.template in misc.

When looking for the ASCII codes for SI and SO or when in doubt if those
parens are actually needed or not.

operator and ascii aren't exactly documentation. share/misc seems like a
place for all odd bits which don't belong anywhere. Heck, there's even a list
of airports, ZIP codes, description of each flower's meaning and a guide to
KNF. What use is *that* one if you don't have the manpages installed to
consult sections 4 and 9? Why not knf(7)?

If you feel so inclined.
Kill operator if you wish, I'll keep local copies anyway.
