Summary 0004704: Documentation reference incorrect in -help page output.
Description This is really trivial, but I will note it anyway as I just noticed it.

"gs -help" produces help page and references gs documentation at bottom of page. The document reference in the help page is incorrect as follows:

For more information, see /opt/csw/share/ghostscript/doc/Use.htm.

Should be as follows which matches the install:

You are correct, it's wrong. To align with CSW the docs are moved but the link was not changed. GS-9.01 is near and I will fix this in the new release.

Thanks for the report, I like to see minor reports, when people make minor reports I know there can't be any major problems!

Fixed in version >= 9.01,REV=2011.03.04

Note the configure script helpfully includes a setting --docdir which unhelpfully is ignored. Hence the document placement was/is manual and now too the link is adjusted externally to the configuration.
