Alarming Discrepancy in Documentation of 'resize' command.

The HTML manual online at
describes resize as "Resizes the partition with number

But the version of the man page for parted at
describes the same as: "resize the _filesystem_ on
partition to start at start and end at end megabytes 
rm partition". Neither documentt gives a clear
description of which versions of parted they apply.

So which is it? They can't both be right. Does
'resize' apply to the partition, or to the filesystem
on the partition? Or are both documents right, but
only for different versions of parted? This would be a
major difference in how parted works, wouldn't it?
