Reporting messed-up links in the manual of the very newest download-package is going to be a tedious job. I know, and appreciate, that BRL-CAD is a give-away shop and as Germans say: "Gekriegenes Gaul guckt man nicht in's Maul". But as I was encouraged to report them, here is another, probably typical, one:
It seems that the name of the file where the link points to has simply, and for which sane reason?, been changed from "mged_cmds.html" to "mged_cmd_index.html". And that is indeed the name of the file, that was also in the very latest download-package, where I found what I hope and believe is the real and genuine "oed"-explanation:
And here is MGED's own, (expert-) "oed"-help:
It should not be too difficult to correct in your html-source all the occurrences of the links to the bad file to point to the good one? And change the very newest installer-package to dustribute the right thing? As now I found how to get at the right info it will probably not be necessary to try that solution here.
Since filing a "bug" for every wrong link I stumble over seems no good solution, somebody might perhaps be glad to receive every once in a while a file with a list of links that point to a wrong file or to no file at all?
