Follow-up Comment #6, bug #45034 (project groff):


:The nail.pdf looks quite similar to this:-
:Which is a program which converts man pages, of all types - not :just mdoc,
to pdf format. I do prefer having the "Contents" :section in the links panel,
rather than the top of the page.

Yes, adding support for the PDF format was done in a simple minded way right
before i posted the last RC to the mailing-list.
(I wrote "as a goody" back then: I initially didn't want to add support for
other output formats for the current mdoc(7) state because of the
"TEXT[START/END]" / "[START]TEXT[/END]" problem: the former simply doesn't
take advantage of formats like PDF etc., i.e., the way references stand out
should be a matter of a stylesheet or the PDF viewer, but definetely should
not include any textual information like "[112]"!  I think adding support for
PDF annotations is only a matter of the way PDFMARK is used.  Which needs to
be proven.)

Maybe there should be some kind of additional mx-toc-disable switch, so that
it is possible to suppress creation of the TOC (that is shown in the document
body)?!  For now only the opposite is supported: I'll do so!

Thanks for your suggestions!
