Bug Description

Per http://<email address hidden>/msg03948.html only -R now follows symlinks. The info page reflects this but the man page does not.

Changed in grep (Ubuntu):
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Low
summary: - grep -r no longer follows symlinks
+ man page is out of date for -r option
