Package: bsdmainutils
Version: 6.1.4
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/man/man1/col.1.gz

Actually col removes carriage returns, in contrast to the man page.
$ echo -e bla\\r\ |od -c
0000000   b   l   a  \r      \n
$ echo -e bla\\r\ |col|od -c
0000000   b   l   a  \n
So mention it on the man page.

Feel free to send a patch and a differently worded manpage. I don't think
though that this is a bug.
