Description

Often users need to convert to/from decimal degrees.

The default output is DMS.

Please add a hint to the manpage that -f '%.8f' can be used to get decimal degree output that can be used for further processing tools. There is no easy hint at the moment how to get the decimal degrees.

See here as a reference:  http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gis.proj-4.devel/1640/focus=1643

Thanks.

I have checked the cs2cs.1 manpage and it does seem to mention that DMS is the default output and that -f can be used to specify other output. Did you have a very specific suggested change?

I have made a minor tweak (r2526) that will hopefully help.
