It seems like a lot, but most of these are easy to fix. Let textproc/igor run over it a couple of times and you'll get the exact spots where you need to fix things.

Update the diff based on Allan's comments. I've decided to remove the newsyslog compression example. This might be something better suited for the handbook. In it's place, I've added Allan's zfs snapshot range deletion examples. I've also changed the date in the custom property example to a more prominent date. ;-)

bcr added a comment to D16688: Add a new Scripting section to the dtrace(1) man page..

Right, examples should have been "variables". I agree with Mark on this one. We need to be careful with licenses even if it is just for docs.
So if I would ask you to describe the types of DTrace variables (for example), could you come up with a description that's complete enough for the man page without being too close to the original?
Otherwise, Mark's suggestion for converting the Guide would work for you. Question is, whether this is just your requirement or is it common enough that it warrants a general inclusion in the man page?

Jan 3 2019, 8:50 PM
bcr added a comment to D16688: Add a new Scripting section to the dtrace(1) man page..
