Grrrrrrrrrrr, 1 of my *long time* complaints w/ Linux (any Linux, 
apparently) is that nobody bothers to keep 
man-pages/FAQS/other-documentation up to date. The cron(8) on my SuSE 
9.2 P4 is dated 1996 (!!!). I lay this at the feet of the distro folks 
myself, but none of them have taken it up :-) ....
