Re: Some words are lost in tcpdump manual

Hi David,

Thanks for your reply!

BTW, I think there is another typo in tcpdump manual

> a number and an interface name, possibly followed by a text
description of the interface, is printed.

> a number and an interface name, ...., are printed.

I submitted bug report before
