The syntax here is confusing, should it be >
[ignoring other options]

tar -c -W one-file-system -f tarfile2Becreated.tar /

{
>From the man pages 
-W longopt=value
 Long options (preceded by --) are only supported directly on systems that
have the getopt_long(3) function.  The -W option can be used to access long
options on systems that do not support this function.
}

Or is there another synopsis?

Thanks!
