mh, yes, i understand. like in man page, all right.
only a question tough:
in help.h file some sentences are with verb and dot, others with verb
and without dot and so on....
is it correct to act as the man page do, or not?
these are output errors/infos and maybe it's more correct to start ever
with an uppercase and end with a dot.. or not?
and if not, the file should be corrected a little....
