lsof - Inconsistency between man page and help
Last modified: 2016-04-18 06:21:26 EDT
Description of problem:
These options are present in man, but not in help:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check man page
2. Check --help option
Inconsistent man page/help
Consistent man page/help
the lsof man page is static and describes all the options. There is a note in every option which is not available on all platforms/architectures where it is available and why.
The lsof usage is dynamically created according to the options available.
Since these differences are well documented, I wouldn't like to change them. Please, let me know if this is OK with you, and if yes, I'll close this bug.
thank you for explanation. I'm OK with closing this bug.
