Description Moritz Barsnick 2004-02-08 12:15:24 EST
Description of problem:
prelink's usage output ("--help") does not tell me that I can pass 
file names as the final command parameters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. prelink --help | head -1
2. man prelink
Actual results:
1. Usage: prelink [OPTION...]
2. prelink [OPTION...] [FILES]

Expected results:
1. Usage: prelink [OPTION...] [FILES]
2. prelink [OPTION...] [FILES]

Additional info:
I missed the fact that I can prelink a single file, until I noticed 
there seemed to be no opposite option to "-a" in "--help" and checked 
the man page.
