Package: emacs24
Version: 24.5+1-2
Severity: normal

As usually I run "man emacs" to examine command line options usage.

That I see:

  --script file
      Run file as an Emacs Lisp script.
  -l file, --load file
      Load the lisp code in the file file.


  --batch Edit in batch mode.  The editor will send messages to stderr.  This
          option must be the first in the argument list.

>From this text it is hard to say difference between --script and --load
options and --batch may be non-first argument according to "info emacs".

Also man page doesn't point to "The Emacs Editor" Info manual which is
canonical reference to Emacs. Please add information about "info emacs" and
"CTRL-h i" - as a primary reference for Emacs usage.

I even asked question at:

as thought that man page is correct.

Best regards!
