great book, nice catch fixing the pre bold font.
on page 77 (advanced part toc) gnu screen lost the space between words
in regexp chapter, "fuzzy matching" is used where i guess "pattern
matching" is more appropriate.
i understand fuzzy to mean approximate matching, using soundex or
levenshtein distances to find similar strings, like in typo correction
perhaps it would be nice to mention the rpl command in the sed chapter?
i know it's not installed by default but it's a more user friendly way
to perform basic search and replace, which is usually the first reason
to use sed in a command line
also not sure why (looks like some font encoding foo?) but try
copy-pasting everything from evince to a text editor. i get mostly a lot
of greek-letter garbage. this also makes searching in the manual find
only things in courier.
