In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 251:

The mysteries of LaTeX have caused the fifth and sixth line of the squid.conf file snippet to be falsely printed. In the fifth line, instead of the underlined parenthesis and 't' and 'g' characters, escaped periods should have appeared. In the sixth line, the wrapping was messed up:

refresh_pattern \.(u?deb|dsc|changes|(orig\.tar|diff)\.gz)$ 14400 20% 2592000
refresh_pattern ((Packages|Sources)(\.(gz|bz2))?|Release(\.gpg)?)$ 14300 20% 14400
Feedback

Ladislav Bodnar, Distrowatch: I have always enjoyed computer books [...] The Debian System - Concepts And Techniques will go down as one of the greatest of them all - the one that I will certainly keep on the table for a long time before I put it up on the shelf, but even then, it will never be far from reach. An absolute must for all users of Debian and Debian derivatives, and a proud addition to any Linux user's book collection. Highly recommended.
