  1. [9fans] Bug of macro .L?

    Macro .L of man generate some strange output, like this:

    ..I Brdline
    returns a pointer to the start of the line or
    ..L 0
    on end-of-file or read error.

    These sentences in bio(2) will generate:

    Brdline returns a pointer to the start of the line or '0' '0 ' on
    end-of-file or read error.

    Is it a bug or something else?

    Fixed. There was a .ie in a recent change that should
    have been a .el. This caused the .ie .el .ie .el .ie .el
    chain in the .L macro definition to misbehave.
