#76 The ipsilon command does not understand help nor --help
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by adelton.

The ipsilon command (/usr/sbin/ipsilon) does not understand help nor --help to give the user any clue how it should be used.

# ipsilon help

There is no man ipsilon(1), just ipsilon(7).

There should be some usage output, and some man page.

This is with ipsilon-0.3.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64.

Decision was to move it from /usr/sbin to /usr/libexec because this isn't intended to be executed by end-users.
