Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:42:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Manual page claims that restore utility works fine when both -P and -A options are given, but the utility rejects them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
# man restore | col -b | grep -- "restore.*-P"
restore -P file [-acdhHklmMNuvVy] [-A file] [-b blocksize] [-f file]
# restore -P file1 -A file2
restore: A option is not valid for P command
-P and -A can be used at the same time
-P and -A cannot be used at the same time
You can see the same problem in the help message:
# restore 2>&1 | grep -- "-P"
restore -P file [-acdhHlmMuvVy] [-A file] [-b blocksize]
