No, it's really not.  This is reinforced by the fact that you are the sole
person having an issue grasping how this all works and would rather
argue your incorrect point of view (and getting the last word in) than
accept that you might be wrong and others might be right.  The people
that have chimed in have a combined experience of _well_ over a hundred
years.  Might just be they know a thing or 10?

If you find the man page confusing for whatever reason there is a SEE
ALSO section that points you to the GNU info page for it, including the 
exact command line necessary to see the invocation specifics; GNU info
pages are generally far more fleshed out than man pages.  You might need
to install the info package but it may be worth it for the additional
information source.

This argumentative nature you are displaying is not going to make people
want to help you further.

I would encourage you to do the same with a bit more open mind and the
understanding that perhaps, just maybe, when you come to a support list
asking for assistance that the assistance you get might actually be,
shocking as it may seem, correct.


If people did not do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.
