Typographical error on tor man pages help command

Reported by: clash Owned by:

Description

man tor gives the following output as the first command:

-h, -help
Display a short help message and exit.

Except it's --help and not -help.

-help doesn't work, I found it weird so I tested it just in case and it doesn't.

New users may get confused if they don't know the -h/--help convention.

Trivial fix. I've created an 035 branch so it can be backported easily. Imo, this should just get merged upstream.

Does https://2019.www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en need to be manually updated or does it pull from the documentation periodically and build itself automatically?

I'm not sure how the website works now, because there is also a manual on www.torproject.org.

Maybe hiro can answer?

I see, I'm not sure either since clicking on 'Documentation' on torproject.org redirects to 2019.tpo

I believe that it gets rebuilt as part of the website rebuild when the old website is told about a new tor version.
