I don't think this is specific to my machine so I'll forego the cygcheck
stuff. If it develops I'm wrong I'll do it...
I did "makewhatis -w" to get the database. When I do an apropos command each
entry has  after the name:
$ apropos perl
a2p  (1) - Awk to Perl translator
alias  (3) - declare symbolic aliases for perl data
B  (3) - The Perl Compiler
What's that  stuff? It doesn't happen on Ubuntu.
Castigation, denigration and mastication cheerfully accepted. ~tm
