nroff indent
Message ID:
When I view man pages generated from POD on OS X, there is a 7-space indent:

PERL(1)                Perl Programmers Reference Guide                PERL(1)

      perl - Practical Extraction and Report Language
<-----> 7 spaces

t/podcheck.t is assuming an 8-space nroff indent when checking for long verbatim lines. Not realising that, I programmed the 7-space indent into

Does that 8-space indent actually occur anywhere, or was it just an assumption?
