Package: limo
Version: 0.3.2-3.1
Severity: wishlist

Love all the extra 'li' features, (especially the '-f' switch), but 
if I'm not mistaken, the man page doesn't show how to output one
line per file suitable for piping.

The '-S' switch seems like it might work:

    % man limo | grep -A 2 -n '\-S'
    266:    -S<character>
    267-          set the default chunk separator character (default  is  a
    268-          space)

...but either it doesn't, or I misunderstand its function:

    # make chunk separator a linefeed
    % li -S'
    ' /bin/ash /bin/bash
    /bin/ash   /bin/bash

I'd expected those file names to be on separate lines.  If that's not
what '-S' is for, then its man page entry is unclear and should be revised
for clarity.

I found a kludge that works:

	% li -W1 /bin/?sh

Possible fixes:

    A) if 'limo' isn't already designed for line output:
        1) Add one-per-line style to the '-p' switch.
	2) Or document the above '-W1' kludge.

    B) if 'limo' has (non-kludge) line output:
	1) the manual should say so**, and maybe the '-h' switch
           text also.

(**Did I miss it?)

Hope this helps...
