I *think* that was supposed to be "of any files" when it was originally
typed, but either works, I suppose :-)

I'm fine however it gets resolved -- just please don't leave it with the
broken text.

thanks for maintaining kmod!

a little bit of archaeology:

this line originally came from the module-init-tools' man page written
in "doc/modprobe.conf.sgml".
Grepping that repo shows that it probably was a copy of
doc/depmod.conf.sgml that
had phrase "The format of <filename>depmod.conf</filename> and files
under <filename>depmod.d</filename> is simple"

So, whoever copied it over forgot to remove the "and". Not that any of
this matter... your version or the
other are perfectly fine today :)



applied,
thanks

Yeah, oops here. I called myself proofing all of that as I copied it,
and I made quite a few changes along the way, but oh well. 
Thanks Daniel and Lucas :-)
