[Dctrl-tools-devel] Bug#557964: dctrl-tools: Man page examples use quotes instead of apostrophes and backticks

Package: dctrl-tools
Version: 2.13.1
Severity: minor


Subject says it all, but let me provide two examples from the
EXAMPLES section:

% grep-status -P -e ’apt|dpkg’

should read

% grep-status -P -e 'apt|dpkg'


% grep-available -c -FMaintainer \
  "‘grep-available -sMaintainer -n -PX grep-dctrl‘"

should read

% grep-available -c -FMaintainer \
  "`grep-available -sMaintainer -n -PX grep-dctrl`"

instead to facilitate copy-paste.
