           Summary: compressdoc: long lines
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: 5.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P5
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: areiner at tph.tuwien.ac.at
         QAContact: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

The compressdoc script has several lines far exceeding 80 characters,
which may cause difficulties with linebreaking.

Specifically, I usually read the book in Lynx, use the `p'rint command to get
a plain text version, edit out everything except shell commands, and feed the
result to bash.  On the console, however, lynx will introduce line breaks at
around 80 characters, so that the script has to be corrected manually.  (This
should also affect those who use gpm to cut-and-paste from lynx.)

The fix is trivial: change the script to shorter lines only, as is the case
throughout the LFS book.
