Description Bernd Eckenfels 2015-11-20 21:10:17 UTC
As reported here:


The documentationshould use "^" instead of "\" and use the correct continuation prompt (or none).


The doc is wrong on the main tomcat site and the comments pointing this out are quite old. This is why I filed an additional bug even if there is no documentation/site category here. Sorry for thatby my tomcat-dev mail was also unresponded. The above post does contain a proposed diff.
