On Sun, Jul 20, 2003 at 11:37:33AM -0500 I heard the voice of
Larry Rosenman, and lo! it spake thus:
> My UnixWare (System V Release 5) system allows -n # to be used for
> the last command, and I find it annoying that the FreeBSD version
> doesn't accept this.
> The Patch below will allow both.
> Unfortunately, I'm not a mdoc person, so I did NOT do a man page
> patch, as I'm not familiar enough with it. If a doc person could
> point me to the appropriate doc, or make the change, I'd appreciate it.
