Description

In the man page the difference between launching spawn-fcgi with »-f "path arg1 arg2 ..."« and »-- path arg1 arg2 ...« are explained.

However, the help shown by »spawn-fcgi -h« does not mention the difference.

Suggestions:

- Change the output of »spawn-fcgi -h« to the following or something similar:

-f <path>      filename of the fcgi-application (deprecated; ignored
               if <fcgiapp> is given; needs /bin/sh which might not be
               available in a chroot; should be avoided if shell expansion
               is not needed)

- Mention missing shell expansion in the man page (not everybody knows how exec() works).

History

#1 Updated by stbuehler almost 8 years ago

I don't think the "-h" help needs to contain every detail; it should be just a short overview of available options.

#2 Updated by hspath almost 8 years ago

How about appending just "deprecated; needs /bin/sh" or "deprecated, see man page"? Currently it seems like it's just another way of invoking spawn-fcgi with no other implications.
