Correct description of -n/--numeric option
"When used twice" was used twice in the manpage. :) And as Florian Westphal pointed out, it was also incorrect for the -nn case. Update the manpage and built-in help in main.c to match actual behavior. Signed-off-by: Jon Jensen <> Signed-off-by: Florian Westphal <>
