Description M. LaPlante 2005-04-14 02:27:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
Small bug... from the ldd manpage:
NAME
       ldd - print shared library dependencies
OPTIONS
       -V --version
              Print the version number of ldd.

However with this build of ldd, --version works and -V does not (print unknown command):

[root@host ~]# ldd -V
ldd: unrecognized option `-V'
Try `ldd --help' for more information.
[root@barricade ~]# ldd --version      
ldd (GNU libc) 2.3.5

No, the bug is in the man page.  See ldd --help for the real list
of options, -V is not among them, only --version is.
