#21 underline in underline word behavior 1 year, 8 months ago

Ticket created by ~ixephus on ~sircmpwn/scdoc

This test currently fails, but I would expect it to succeed.

Current output:

$ scdoc <<EOF | grep hello 
test(8)

_hello_world_
EOF
\fIhello\fRworld_

The work around is of course very straightforward (_hello\_world_). The documentation seems to imply that underscores in the middle of words are disregarded, which led me to believe that the escape of the middle underscore was not necessary.

So maybe only a documentation update is required for clarification?
