Bug#340810: read-todos: -f is not for saving to filename!

積丹尼 Dan Jacobson
Package: pilot-link
Version: 0.11.8-12
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/read-todos

Seen today:
|$ read-todos
|ERROR: Insufficient number of arguments
|
|   Syncronize your ToDo database with your desktop machine
|
|   Usage: read-todos -p <port> [options]
I see, always at least I need -p (but not for -f, so say "-p port|-f")
|
|   Options:
|     -p, --port <port>       Use device file <port> to communicate with Palm
|     -h, --help              Display help information for read-todos
|     -v, --version           Display read-todos version information
|     -f, --file <filename>   Save ToDO entries in <filename> instead of STDOUT
I see, -f is for saving to filename.
|
|   Examples:
|
| Read the on-Palm ToDo database, and dump to STDOUT
| read-todos -p /dev/pilot
|
| Read the ToDoDB.pdb file on disk, and dump to STDOUT
| read-todos -f ToDoDB.pdb
Wait! Didn't you say -f is for saving... now you mean reading from...!!

$ man read-todos
|       -f, --file <filename>
|              Save ToDO entries in <filename> instead of STDOUT
Same problem!!
|
|       Example:
|        read-todos -p /dev/pilot -d ~/Palm

-d? it is not mentioned anywhere else here.

|       By  default,  the contents of your Palm's memo database will be written
|       to standard output as a standard Unix mailbox (mbox-format) file,  with
|       each  memo  as a separate message.  The subject of each message will be
|       the category.

Memo database? Why not the ToDo database?
