Description Jan Kaluža 2010-10-19 07:58:02 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #642936 +++

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
logrotate-3.7.4-9.el5_5.1

Steps to Reproduce:
# ./compare-options.sh /usr/sbin/logrotate 
Program path:
	/usr/sbin/logrotate
Man pages found:
	/usr/share/man/man8/logrotate.8.gz
The binary analysis was NOT done
Doing man page vs. usage message comparison

The program reported 13 option(s)
The man page reported 12 option(s)
9 COMMON option(s):
	--force
	--mail
	--state
	--usage
	-d
	-f
	-m
	-s
	-v
4 option(s) reported by the program ONLY:
	--debug
	--help
	--verbose
	-?
3 option(s) reported by the man page ONLY:
	-HUP
	-dv
	-force

-HUP is false positive (it is used in text like an example of killall)
-dv is false positive (it is combination of -d and -v)

Actual results: 
no all parameters of program are in man page and 1 in man page is wrong (typo)

Expected results:
all parameters in program and man page are same
