digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 15446] New: Update DMD's man page


          Issue ID: 15446
           Summary: Update DMD's man page
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

          Reporter: samjnaa gmail.com

I'm using DMD on Kubuntu Trusty 64 bit.

The man page (displayed by `man dmd`) seems to be seriously out of date
compared to the actual functionality. I'm not sure what is the equation of the
actual functionality to the online documentation, but it is clear that at least
the man page is outdated w.r.t. the online documentation.

For instance, `man dmd | grep main` produces nothing, whereas
http://dlang.org/dmd-linux.html#switches describes the -main switch.

Please update the man page (and the online doc if necessary) to reflect the
actual functionality.
