dan> I can understand this for btex...etex blocks, but [not for verbatimtex...]
FWIW, I agree. Taco, shouldn't verbatim be verbatim?
taco>There is a --debug switch, which leaves all temporary files in place,
Don't keep it a secret :).
dan> I was surprised to notice that "mpost --help" doesn't display a
banner line (i.e., "This is MetaPost, version 1.208").
tex --help does not either, nor gcc --help, cp --help, etc.
I don't argue that showing the banner version information in --help
would be useful, though.
Also --version and --help can't be combined.
Once either --version or --help is processed, the program exits
immediately. That's how they have always worked.
