Subject: dpkg: dpkg -h sends output to stderr instead of stdout
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.0
This is something that has been bugging me since debian0.93! When asking
dpkg for command infomation (ie. dpkg -h --force-help) it pipes it to stderr
instead of stdout. Very irritating especially if you wanna pipe it to more.
And yes I do know about 2> /dev/stdout...
