- Subject: man size
With "LANG=C.UTF-8", "man size" writes U+23AA (CURLY BRACKET
EXTENSION) characters in place of vertical bars (ASCII 0x7C).
Not only does this Unicode "Miscellaneous Technical" character
not display properly, it also seems a poor character choice
for this context.
Possibly not related, after several attempts in a row,
sometimes up to ten, I see the following error:
$ man size | head
SIZE(1) GNU Development Tools SIZE(1)
size - list section sizes and total size.
Error executing formatting or display command.

No manual entry for size
