Re: bin/48667 (awk: man page for gsub shows wrong order of arguments)

Synopsis: awk: man page for gsub shows wrong order of arguments

     gsub(r, t, [s])
             same as sub() except that all occurrences of the regular
             expression are replaced; sub() and gsub() return the number of

     sub(r, t, [s])
             substitutes t for the first occurrence of the regular expression
             r in the string s.  If s is not given, $0 is used.

% echo hi | awk '{ sub(".", "x", $0); print $0; }'

Seems to me like it's doing what the man page says. Can you clarify?
