I was looking for the non-POSIX FreeBSD utilities from here:
He talks about -d -h and -M options currently not available.
And i did a quick source to find original related document of POSIX. I
met following PDFs may be interesting:
9th page and 6th item says that:
The Linux file utility is not required to support the –M, –h, –d, and
the –i options. The portable application shall not use these options.
Is there a contradiction between them?
I wonder that what jobs these options should perform? And is there any
developer currently working on it?
