Some other commenter mentions a redhat-specific 'restart' wrapper, so I suppose that's what this was referring to, but to capitalize the R indicates (1) that the authors are unix neophytes at best


Or that they're using one of those annoying editors that helpfully capitalizes the first letter of what it thinks is a sentence.

I use editors like that all the time and I put myself through the pain of going back every time it 'corrects' a word that should start with a lower case letter and uncorrecting it. I am not sympathetic for people who are so unobservant or lazy that they don't notice or don't bother to do the same.
