[perl #125291] documentation error in perlreref

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.20.2.

The "perlreref" documentation -- both that shipped with perl 5.20.2 and
that appearing at -- contains
an error.

In the CHARACTER CLASSES section, the Print character class is
described as "Graph plus Print," which is nonsensical.  According to
perlrecharclass, the difference between Graph and Print is that the
latter includes the space character, so I presume "Graph plus Print"
in perlreref is a typo for "Graph plus Space."

(Also, while looking up the online version of the manual on,
I noticed that erroneously says "direct
links which maybe of interest" instead of "direct links which may be
of interest.")
