Summary 0001458: semctl missing first link to sys/sem.h
Description On
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/semctl.html [^]
The first link that would normally be included isn't there.
In the text
#include <sys/sem.h>
the text
sys/sem.h
should be a link to
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/basedefs/sys_sem.h.html [^]

The semget and semop pages are currently correct, only semctl has this omission of a link.

This omission also affects the previous standard's equivalent page, too:
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/semctl.html [^]
Desired Action Make the text "sys/sem.h" in "#include <sys/sem.h>" a link to
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/basedefs/sys_sem.h.html [^]

Looks like the root cause of this is that the troff source has:
#include\ <sys/sem.h>

The HTML translator is presumably looking for something like "#include[[:blank:]]*<" and so the backslash throws it off.

I will remove the backslash so that when the translator is run for Issue 8 the problem is not repeated, but the problem should in the meantime be corrected by hand in the current online edition.
