Man Page for netstat Truncated (4246745)

When a user tries to access the netstat(1M) reference manual page using the man command, the page does not print completely. The problem arises because of an nroff bug that occurs only in the C locale. The nroff file generated by the man command contains invalid characters that may cause a core dump.

The same behavior occurs with the netmask(1M) and m64config(1M) reference manual pages.

Workaround: Use AnswerBook2 to view the complete netstat(1M), netmask(1M), and m64config(1M) reference manual pages.
