[patch, docs] Re: Typo in gcc manpage (mfp-trap-mode flag, su)


:ADDPATCH documentation:

Rob wrote (in the Fortran list):
Sorry, I'm only subscribed to this list,
not to gcc list, as I'm working only with
gfortran...and many of the gcc flags also
apply to gfortran.

I believe you can send (or cc) things to the other lists regardless of whether you're subscribed to them or not, though.


In the gcc manpage it says for the mfp-trap-mode
flag:

su Like su, but the instructions...

I suppose: s/Like su,/Like u,/

but I might be wrong.
As it is now, it's rather silly :).

The attached patch fixes this, assuming that is indeed the correct replacement. (I don't know for certain either, but it's the only plausible option given the context.)


Since I don't know for certain that this is correct, I won't commit it as obvious. Thus: Ok for trunk?
