Michael Forney 3e160b616a chmod: Remove -HLP flags, and ignore symlinks during traversal
These flags are non-POSIX and not useful since the mode of symlinks
is not used for anything.

This prevents a failure when a dangling symlink is encountered
during a recursive chmod.

Michael Forney 22921a859f Fix various lint warnings in manuals
Fix "new sentence, new line" warnings throughout so that formatters
can produce correct spacing between sentences.

  Remove unnecessary Ns macros. These are not necessary for delimeters,
  which get special treatment.

  Fix date in manual. The contents were last modified on 2016-12-03,
  so use that instead of the invalid date.

  Fix escape sequence for `\<` and `\>`.

  Remove spurious `\\n` escape for the null-command.

Michael Forney f3d05ffd0a chmod: Implement X perm symbol
Instead of clearing the format bits before calling parsemode, leave
them in so we can differentiate between directories and other files,
then clear the format bits in the result.

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 aea256c288 Audit chmod(1)
1) Update manpage, refactor the HLP-section and other wordings.
2) BUGFIX: If chmod() fails, don't recurse.
3) Rewrite the arg-loop, fixing several issues:
   BUGFIX: Handle multi-flags (e.g. -RH)
   BUGFIX: Properly handle the termination flag --, error on e.g. --x
   BUGFIX: Error out on an empty flag -.
4) Refactor logic after the arg-loop, which is now simpler thanks
   to argv-incremention.

- don't redeclare .Nm when it's not needed.
- fix some warnings (checked with mandoc -Tlint).
- remove some leftover old stuff.

FRIGN 409db4e5d7 Add additional info to mkdir(1), mkfifo(1) and chmod(1)-manpages 2015-01-28 21:15:55 +01:00
FRIGN b55de3d1a2 Add mandoc-manpage for chmod(1)
and mark it as finished in README.

One small rationale on the way the manpage is set up: Looking at
the coreutils manpage, it does not invite to be a quick reference
guide, whereas I wrote this manpage to be short and concise in regard
to the information the advanced user needs.
No one needs to explain what an octal number is. That's not part of
the scope of this manpage.
Also, nobody wants to read a block of text just to find out how
to build an octal mode string.
