man pages for 'fread' & 'fwrite'

man pages for 'fread' & 'fwrite'

I'm not sure who maintains the man pages for Linux, but those for fread and
fwrite wrongly describe the return values.

They return the NUMBER OF ELEMENTS read or written, NOT the number of

1. 'info' displays hyphens in man pages as '^i' instead of '-'

When I execute the info command for topics found in man
pages (e.g. "info diald-examples") info fires up and
displays the *man-page* information. But, it displays all
hyphens ('-') for words that have been broken at the end of
a line as '^i's. This is true in text mode at the console
and under X using rxvt or xterm.

Can anyone enlighten me on why this is happening and if
there is a fix? I am running Debian 2.0.
