           Summary: Included man files should be updated
           Product: D
           Version: 0.149
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/dcompiler.html
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P3
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: unknown simplemachines.org

The man files included with DMD 0.149 are out of date.  It is my opinion that
if the release contains man files, they should be updated (and, ideally, kept
up to date) with compiler option changes and such.

Updating them is not hard, and I have done so (adding an rdmd as wel); I will
attach them to this bug, if I can, or post a URL in a comment otherwise.

Updated man pages for DMD 0.149

The attached archive contains updated man pages, where the changes include:

1. A date and other conventional information added to each page.
2. Pages added for dmd.conf (should go in man5) and rdmd.
3. Page about obj2asm corrected for actual Linux behavior.
4. Spacing and formatting of the source groff changed to make editing easier.
5. Output formatting tweaked to show filenames in italics as convention.
6. New changes, flags, and updated wordings folded in.
7. ENVIRONMENT, BUGS, and DESCRIPTION sections added for dmd.
8. SEE ALSO references added to all pages.

I tried, as much as possible, to stick with "official" phrasings from the
program itself or website.
