Maria Valentina Marin <> no debian 2015-08-19
036-fix-tbl-font-parsing.patch Fix tbl font parsing
The printf.1posix man page contains tbl table that looks like this:
lf5 | lf5 | lf7.
9999999999@2147483647@printf: "9999999999" arithmetic overflow

While parsing the last 'f' from the header line man2html used to ignore
all the characters until the next space. Unfortunately this included
the '.' (dot) that ends the header. As a result man2html considered the
table data lines as being part of the header and thus set the length
of cells to 9999999999 and 2147483647 characters. Finally it tried to
display such an unreasonable number of &nbsp; entities, what make it
to appear to hang...

To fix the issue make sure the trailing dot is not ignored while parsing
'f' or 'F' specifiers of tbl header.

037-man2html-Nm-and-Bk-mdoc.patch Fix .Nm and .Bk mdoc macros handling
Make sure .Nm mdoc remembers the argument used for its very first
call (that is in NAME section rather than in SYNOPSIS, as it was
implemented), and then use the saved argument for other calls that
contain no argument at all or contain only punctation.

Skip any options given to .Bk and .Ek commands. Currently the only
option possible for .Bk is '-words', that is the default option anyway,
and .Ek does not take any options, according to groff_mdoc(7).

The two following fixes make it possible to properly display
dash(1) man page.
Robert Luberda <> no 2020-12-20
038-man2html-colon-escape-sequence.patch Fix \: escape sequence
Handle \: sequence in the same way as \%, i.e. by replacing
it with empty string. Quoting groff(7):
\: Inserts a zero-width break point (similar to \% but
without a soft hyphen character)
Robert Luberda <> no 2020-12-20
039-hman-sensible-browser-by-default.patch hman: Use sensible-browser by default
As execution of local CGI scripts is by default disabled in lynx
for security reasons, make hman use sensible-browser (or value of
MANHTMLPAGER env variable if set), even if lynx is installed.
This fixes 'executable rejected due to location or path' error
when hman was trying to run lynx.

If a user changes lynx configuration to permit execution of
local CGI scripts, he or she can set MANHTMLPAGER to 'lynxcgi'
to restore the previous behaviour.
