This is a bug report for perl from dgatwood@mac.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.8.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

The manual page for "Cyrus::SIEVE::managesieve" is pretty bad.
It doesn't say much at all about the functionality, and adds
"blah blah blah" as filler.  That's pretty embarrassing.  From
the man page:

NAME
        Cyrus::SIEVE::managesieve - Perl extension for blah blah
        blah

SYNOPSIS
          use Cyrus::SIEVE::managesieve;
          blah blah blah

DESCRIPTION
        Call sieve_get_handle to get a handle for further calls.
        sieve_get_error will return a string representing the last
        error, if any.

        Blah blah blah.
