What do others think? Personally I think a luser who doesn't find the hidden options anyway, will probably be better off without them ;-) I made suggestions to further reduce the main usage output, but you didn't like them. (May be it is easier to reduce the list when --list=hidden-options is mentioned on the main screen.) IMHO, these are candidates for --list=hidden-options: --pipe --loopback[=FILE] --dupe-suppression --pot=NAME Frank
