docs: make sure literal "->" isn't converted to arrow
Recent versions of asciidoc will treat "->" as a single-glyph arrow symbol, unless it is inside a literal code block. This is a problem if we are discussing literal output and want to show the ASCII characters. Our usage falls into three categories: 1. Inside a code block. These can be left as-is. 2. Discussing literal output or code, but inside a paragraph. This patch escapes these as "\->". 3. Using the arrow as a symbolic element, such as "use the Edit->Account Settings menu". In this case, the arrow symbol is preferable, so we leave it as-is. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <peff@peff.net> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
