netcat -q0 broken

Bug #242350 reported by Nafallo Bjälevik on 2008-06-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
netcat-openbsd (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: netcat-openbsd


netcat -q0 is apparently the default with the openbsd version, but specifying that (which is needed with traditional makes it go 'invalid option -- q'. This warning should be ignored for -q0 and give a warning only the rest of -q. This is used for amongst other things SSH's ProxyCommand.

Cheers, /N
