FRIGN e51a2e6d2f Use ISO-date-format in manpages
The one specified by mdoc is hard to read for non-native
speakers from countries which read the date day-first (like
Germany, Greece, North-Korea, Swamp,...).
This is also consistent with how we generally specify dates

FRIGN 57dc7b94b0 POSIX 2013 audit
Mostly manpage-shuffling according to the changes in the corrigendum,
wording changes and more idiomatic expressions.
All this is finished up by marking the POSIX 2013 conformant tools
.St -p1003.1-2013
which is not available in older mandoc builds or nroff, but which
reflects what we actually did, so who cares?

This is a huge step and it's not far until we can release sbase 0.1.

FRIGN 274e86e1aa Audit cp(1)
1) Refactor the manpage, which has been a bloody mess, documenting
   fantasy-flags (-d for example) and add a STANDARDS section
2) fix usage()
3) sort ARG-block
4) Check return-value of stat() separately, so a lack of permissions
   doesn't tell the user "the directory doesn't exist", which could
   be a bit confusing.
5) Add empty line before return.

sin 16719ea6e1 cp: Update program usage and manpages
Do not document the non-standard -r flag as it is highly discouraged.
It is still silently accepted and treated the same as -R.

Michael Forney e14e0becce cp: Rename -d option to -P
The -d option is a GNU extension and is equivalent to its "-P
--preserve=links" options.

Since we don't implement the --preserve=links functionality anyway (it
means preserve hard links between files), just call it -P, which is
specified by POSIX.

Additionally, there is no need to check for cp_Pflag again before
copying the symlink itself because the only way the mode in the stat
will indicate a symlink is if we used lstat (which we only do if -P is
