            Bug ID: 42252
           Summary: Improve llvm-symbolizer help text
           Product: tools
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: llvm-symbolizer
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: jh7370.2008 at my.bristol.ac.uk

* The help text has references to other options as "Alias for -<long-option>",
with a single dash, which is inconsistent with the double-dashes in the switch

* Some options, such as -dsym-hint are specific to Mach-O, but there is no
indication of this in the help text. It might be nice to have an option
category specifically for these options.

* The --color option is in the help text but not in the documentation. This
option probably doesn't appear to have a purpose and should therefore be

* The --time-trace-granularity is in the help text, but not in the
documentation. It doesn't look like this switch has any relevance to
llvm-symbolizer so should probably be removed.

* The help text for --print-source-context-lines seems incomplete (currently it
says "Print N number of source file context", and looks like it's missing the
word "lines" somewhere).
