g.html2man: parsing leads to man page errors
|Reported by:||hamish||Owned by:||grass-dev@…|
tools/g.html2man has a number of parsing problems.
there are a few like cairodriver.1 which happen to start lines with ".", which gets parsed incorrectly by the man program. e.g. in cairodriver it lists ouput formats, and the '.pn' of .png gets hijacked and all those image types end up missing from the resulting man page.
another popular one is <OL><LI> becoming ..IP instead of .IP (e.g. pngdriver.1 just after "Example")
and yet another is g.parser.1 where #%multiple: gets eaten.
