Summary 0001278: Problems with -n flag in the specification of pax.
Description In Issue 7-ed2018, there's some dubious specification about the -n flag.

There's an -n flag present in the copy mode synopsis for pax, and absent in the write mode.

However, after all the flags been discussed in the OPTIONS section, there's the mention of -n flag's behavior in read and write mode.
Desired Action Clarify what modes can the -n flag be applied to, and the behavior in these modes.

Correct SYNOPSIS section for pax.

The problem with -n in the copy mode synopsis was raised in bug 0001270.

Proposed change to correct the additional problem of -n being mentioned in relation to write mode...

On page 3076 line 102590 section pax, change:
In write mode, the files shall be selected based on the user-specified pathnames as modified by the −n and −u options
In write mode, the files shall be selected based on the user-specified pathnames as modified by the −u option.
