I was trying to find out information about pmap this morning, and ran
man pmap... the man page gives me the options for launching pmap, but tells me nothing about how to interpret what I see on the screen when I've run the program. I would like to report this as a bug in Launchpad, but I want to know if this has been fixed in a newer version of Ubuntu.
I'm running 10.04. Here's what I get:
NAME pmap - report memory map of a process SYNOPSIS pmap [-x|-d] [-q] pid ... pmap -V DESCRIPTION The pmap command reports the memory map of a process or processes. GENERAL OPTIONS -x extended Show the extended format. -d device Show the device format. -q quiet Do not display some header/footer lines. -V show version Displays version of program. SEE ALSO ps(1), pgrep(1) STANDARDS No standards apply, but pmap looks an awful lot like a SunOS com‐ mand.

Can someone run this on a more modern Ubuntu, and see if the man pages have been updated in the last couple of years? (I'm guessing not... the previous revision was in 2002, but I still like to cover my bases)
