Description

16 years ago
The help page for certutil emphasizes that "certutil -C" takes a BINARY cert
request. It doesn't mention that you can specify the "-a" flag to accept an
ASCII cert request, which is what most people have anyway.

Actually I think tools was the right component, since the help page is in the tool itself.

sure, we can make this change.  But it's reaally time for someone to overhaul certutil's help/usage messages to eliminate all the duplication of information about common options.

Thanks for the quick review, Nelson. The consolidation should be done in a separate bug.

I checked this in to the tip.

Checking in certutil.c;
/cvsroot/mozilla/security/nss/cmd/certutil/certutil.c,v  <--  certutil.c
