  -X Unlock agent.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 1 Peter van Egdom 2003-04-21 10:24:58 UTC
Seems fixed in "openssh-3.5p1-6" on Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike).

[peterve@powermate ssh]$ ssh-add -h
ssh-add: illegal option -- h
Usage: ssh-add [options]
Options:
  -l          List fingerprints of all identities.
  -L          List public key parameters of all identities.
  -d          Delete identity.
  -D          Delete all identities.
  -x          Lock agent.
  -X          Unlock agent.
  -t life     Set lifetime (in seconds) when adding identities.
[peterve@powermate ssh]$ man ssh-add |col -b |grep -i unlock
     -X      Unlock the agent.
[peterve@powermate ssh]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
[peterve@powermate ssh]$
