I saw the following line in this wiki tutorial on ROS services and parameters:

rosservice has many commands that can be used on topics, as shown below:

I think this is a typo as rosservice commands should work on services and not topics. But as a relatively new ROS user, I would like a confirmation from more experienced users.

Thanks.

yes, this is a mistake and should be corrected.

Could be copy-pasta from the rostopic page.

Wow! I learnt ROS from HRWROS on edx.

I have corrected the mistake though.

Seems that topics was there since at least 2009-09 (this rev).

Fix diff.
