funny character on man page of aptitude
The man page of aptitude has some funny charters around the options which make the manual a bit unreadable. Here is a snapshot
Install <package> and immediately mark it as automatically installed (note that if nothing
depends on <package>, this will cause it to be immediately removed).
Purge <package>: remove it and all its associated configuration and data files.
$ cat /etc/debian_version
$ dpkg-query --show aptitude
Any ideas why is this happening?
