| There is a typo in the manpage of fdisk (8):
| <<-w file
| Write the modified partition table to file file instead of the disk>>
| (file twice ?)
Yes. If you were reading in a marked-up format, the second instance
would be italic, underlined, or something, as would the use of "file"
in the "-w file" line. That refers to the arg to the -w option, and
is replaced by whatever filename you enter.
The first of the two uses of "file" together is just the normal word
(displayed with no special markup).
That is just shorthand for
Write the modified partition table to the file names by
the "file" argument instead of to the fdisk.
(The description of -r is just the same).
There is nothing really to fix here.
