acute-accent-in-manual-page

This manual page uses the \' groff sequence. Usually, the intent to generate an apostrophe, but that sequence actually renders as an acute accent.

For an apostrophe or a single closing quote, use plain '. For single opening quote, i.e. a straight downward line ' like the one used in shell commands, use '\(aq'.

For more information please consult:
