All these messages could probably reduced to one single message of the type
"Missing option ''$MISSING_OPTION"

The reason is that the name of the option shouldn't be translated anyway,
so a change like this will save translators from having to translate a
message for every single option.

It's not the name of the option; it's a description of what the option

Comment 2 Christian Rose 2001-02-07 23:03:11 UTC
Ok, I guess it was the quotes around it that confused me to belive it was option

Well, then this is not a bug.

Comment 3 Christian Rose 2001-02-07 23:09:25 UTC
Come to think of it, maybe "option" in these messages should be replaced by
"parameter" then.
These are really parameters, no?

"cp -r foo"
Here, "foo" is a parameter, and "-r" is an option. This is my picture of the
nomenclature =)

So if the "options" here are used as "parameters", maybe they should be renamed
to reflect that. Reopening.

Will be changed in 5.63-1.
