Description Sven Arvidsson 2007-01-23 16:46:56 UTC
This bug was filed in the Debian BTS.

"I have to check some methods of std::string (thats a manual page from libstdc++6-doc package).
when i type "std::string" in search box in yelp_2.14 I get a lot of other
links insetead the correct one.

I can run juest 
$ pinfo std::string 
and It shows me what I needed

I can do the same in konqueror typing main:/std::string in the address field.

I also have old yelp_2.4 on the other machine (the lastest 
usable version of this progam), and even here typing std::string 
takes my directly to the right manual page."

Yelp seems to interpret a search for "std::string" as "std string" and does not give appropriate results.

Although I don't have libstdc++6-doc installed, testing here with

  yelp man:HTML::FormatRTF

works, so I think this bug is fixed in the current master tree.
