Delivered-To: maintonly@bugs.debian.org

Package: libc6
Version: 2.2.5-6
Severity: minor

I suppose it's ok for iconv -l vs. iconv -l|cat to have different
behaviors, like ls, but at least the man page should say so.
But all the
ISO-8859-1//
ISO-8859-2//
ISO-8859-3//
"//" stuff looks like a bug.

Well, if so, the documentation becomes much longer and larger...
Selecting the context/content makes much easier to read.

I close this bug.
