Package: predict
Version: 2.2.3-1
Severity: wishlist

predict's -p option is totally busted. strace(1) shows near the end:

open("", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Go ahead and try various combinations as per the manual. Same deal:
silent death.

-f works though. Although +10m and +10h and +10m --help all give the
same. It would be nice if --help was implemented.

-east is ignored apparently. Be sure to put a negative in your .qth
file instead! Same with predict-g1yhh, a command which by the way, I would have
never known about if I had not hit the bash TAB, as you don't say SEE
ALSO predict-g1yhh(1) on the predict(1) man page!

Version: 2.2.5+dfsg.1-1+rm
