Thank you for the clarification Paul.

For newbies the help/man page are a PITA, for example take a look at
JACK2. Some options are not only missing explanations, beyond that
the man page even doesn't mention all options shown by help.

For example:

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ jackd --help|grep sync;man jackd|grep sync;info jackd|grep sync
no message buffer overruns
no message buffer overruns
no message buffer overruns
               [ --sync OR -S ]
       It focuses on two key areas: synchronous execution of all clients, and low latency operation.
       -L --async-latency
              Extra output latency in asynchronous mode (percent) (default: 100)
              The socket port we are listening on for sync packets (default: 3000)
       -t, --transport-sync int
info: No menu item 'jackd' in node '(dir)Top'.

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ jackd --help|grep autoconnect -A6; man jackd|grep autoconnect
no message buffer overruns
no message buffer overruns
no message buffer overruns
               [ --autoconnect OR -a <modechar>]
                 where <modechar> is one of:
                   ' ' - Don't restrict self connect requests (default)
                   'E' - Fail self connect requests to external ports only
                   'e' - Ignore self connect requests to external ports only
                   'A' - Fail all self connect requests
                   'a' - Ignore all self connect requests

Ralf
