Description H.J. Lu 2010-12-15 19:29:08 UTC
--target option was added to ar. But it isn't documented and
"ar --help" doesn't show the new option.

Hi H.J.

  The --help output does include a mention of --target, and the selection of targets that it supports.  You were correct however in noting that the documentation did not mention this option.  I have checked in a patch to address this failing, and at the same time include a mention of the --help and --version command line options.

Cheers
  Nick
