hi.

i don;t think the example is wrong. it says it alters the priority of
process IDs 987 and 32. and the man page notes:

         If none of the -gpu options are specified, the default is
         to select by process ID.

having said that, i do think the example is a really weird way to
specify IDs 987 and 32 and users daemon and root. and since it does give
both -u and -p, it might not be entirely obvious to link it back to the
text sating that -p is the default. it would be saner to do:

        # renice -n +1 -p 987 32 -u daemon root
or
        # renice -n +1 987 32 -u daemon root

(not tested!)

both netbsd and freebsd have the same example that we currently have, so
they're probably pretty old. so not sure if it's worth changing. or leaving
as an exercise to the reader...

example is fine, i got confused doing more than one thing at a time
bit confusing the 987 is not after the option like in SYNOPSIS

On a helping / clarity point of vue,changing
`The following example changes the priority of process`
by something like
`The following raise the priority of process to allocate more
resources to it by 1 `
may be more helping to someone in a hurry
