Bug Description

In the manual page for snmpcmd under the output options section, there's the documentation for the -Ov parameter but the example command line given uses -Oe (see below). Just a minor error.

       -Ov Display the varbind value only, not the OID:
                  $ snmpget -c public -v 1 -Oe localhost ipForwarding.0
                  INTEGER: forwarding(1)

You haven't fixed the correct line in the man page.

You've changed the -Oe example instead of the -Ov.
