OK, that's a good idea - my command lines were getting very long!

One other thing would be a --help option, is there a way that I can output
to stdout? printf, and fprintf(stdout,..) don't output to the command line.
I'm currently using fprintf(stderr, ..), which brings up a handy dialog box,
for tracing.

It should be a very useful addition; that's why I thought I'd better check
if anyone else was doing the same!
