Hi folks,

Running Cygwin groff 1.22.4 mandb 2.11.2 man -H tbl is not rendered from newlib strftime.3 man page (truncated after .TE, 44 redundant occurrences of "l l" removed before "l l.", other lines commented out in .3 file attached, as is generated HTML, and docbook source: see below).

This man page tbl extract is interesting, as it needs at least the .TH directive plus the .TS/.../.TE lines to generate the tty man page, whereas tables from other man pages can be extracted and still render on both tty and HTML.

If you can point me to something in the tbl content that is problematic and/or how to fix it, given the below, then I could work my way back down the chain to fix the root cause, or determine it is a groff/man bug, possibly fixed in the pending release, I would greatly appreciate the pointer.

[The man page source comes from docbook comments embedded in the source:


via makedocbook python script which generates xml (attached), then docbook generates html, man pages, PDFs, texinfo, and the latter generate libc info.]

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis                 Calgary, Alberta, Canada
