Summary0000685: manpage of get_dir() lacks hint for differences in compat mode
DescriptionUnlike other manpages like object_name() or program_name(), the manpage of get_dir() does NOT contain a hint that the returned directory paths have the leading slash stripped in compat mode.

Please add a hint according to the other manpages, that one can easily grep through /doc/efun for "COMPAT" to see which efuns have a different behaviour.

This issue affects all current versions of LDMUD.
TagsNo tags attached.

I added a note in r2759 and r2760 for 3.3. and 3.5.

Concerning other manpages: the best would be to create a bug with a list of manpages which miss that information (or even better would be a patch *g*).
