Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186139
shouldn't print the literal pid in --help
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:12:30 EST
Description of problem:
# stap --help 2>&1| grep -- -m
-m MODULE set probe module name, instead of stap_24898
Probably should state that it's stap_<pid>, not a literal number.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Do you feel really strongly about this? All the "instead of ..." messages print
the current value (after fixed initialization and after prior command line options).
Well, I feel it's strange that it's printing a value that's guaranteed to be
incorrect if you run it again.
I understand your concern, and appreciate your attention. Still, I think the
problem is not big enough to worry about special-casing. (As for "stap_<pid>"
instead, that too taken literally is guaranteed incorrect. :-)
