Almost all the command line options described in the PCB manual are bogus.
Apparently, the options got a major rewrite sometime in the past which did not
make it into the documentation. 
Last year, I wrote a set patches to correct this and while at it, move the 
source of the information into the source. I introduced an additional 
parameter in the comment syntax to allow for arbitrary sequence in the 
compiled manual. The only developer who commented, did not like this. 
So the set of patches was not applied and the manual is still misleading
when it comes to command line options.
