olback116913yI agree. Both -v and --version should do the same thing.
Isn’t -v verbose and -V version? I get the legacy aspect but the inconsistency in GNU coreutils kills me.
inaba50473yAre you even allowed to use -version as a parameter?
Noob67453yYeah, inconsistencies between the parameter syntax is annoying. Add to that the different meaning for the same flag in similar commands.
