Description Milos Malik 2008-03-12 12:47:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; cs-CZ; rv: Gecko/20080208 Fedora/ Firefox/ pango-text

Description of problem:
The man page is dedicated to the sg_wr_mode utility, but in the EXAMPLES section you can see how to use sg_wr_mode together with sg_modes. When somebody executes sg_modes according to these examples he/she will see following errors:

bad argument to '--control='
Bad argument to '--page='

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man sg_wr_mode
2. go to the EXAMPLES section

Actual Results:
One occurrence of:
sg_modes -c=2 -p=1a -r /dev/sda > t

Two occurrences of:
sg_modes -p=1a /dev/hdc

Expected Results:
One occurrence of:
sg_modes --control=2 --page=1a -r /dev/sda > t

Two occurrences of:
sg_modes --page=1a /dev/hdc

Additional info:
Comment 1 Milos Malik 2008-03-12 13:15:33 EDT
I omitted another wrong example in the man page:

sg_modes -p=1a -r /dev/sdb > mp_1a.txt

There should be following:

sg_modes -p 1a -r /dev/sdb > mp_1a.txt
