That's precisely the one I have.
duh, it just occurred to me to try it with a -x - I'll give that a go:
@plg2% ./xfig -h
+ export XFILESEARCHPATH
+ exec /opt/csw/bin/xfigbin -xrm *customization: -color -h
So yes, it does look like it's trying to pass -h, but I don't get help,
I get xfig. xfigbin works as expected:
@plg2% xfigbin -h
Xfig 3.2 patchlevel 4 (Protocol 3.2)
xfig [-h[elp]] [-v[ersion]]
but eg "xfig -nosplash" or "xfigbin -nosplash" still show the splash
screen. Similarly, it appears as if other options like those for
gridlines are being silently tossed.
People on the net are always telling other people to "get a life."
It would be so much simpler if there were one available under the GPL.
