Description Erik Sjölund 2023-05-29 17:01:09 UTC
The help output is written to stderr. It would be better if the help output
was written to stdout instead. That would make it easier to grep for command-line options.

A test on Fedora 38

$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/pasta
$ /usr/bin/pasta --help 2>&1 | grep -- --help
  -h, --help		Display this help message and exit
$ /usr/bin/pasta --help 2> /dev/null
