      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Ubuntu 20.10, JDK 15

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      In the Linux man file for the java command in JDK 15, the path arguments to options such as -classpath say "A semicolon (;) separated list of directories..." which is true on Windows but should say "colon (:)" when on a Linux system.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      man java | grep 'list of directories'

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Should say "A colon (:) separated list of directories"
      ACTUAL -
      Says "A semicolon (;) separated list of directories"
