Hello, thank you for the suggestion. I dont' touch what '-n' option shows and rewrite documents for the option a bit. And '-n' won't show the changes of backup location.

The html(sgml) document says that, === share/doc/html/app-pgresetxlog.html | The -n (no operation) option instructs pg_resetxlog to print | the values reconstructed from pg_control and values about to be | changed, and then exit without modifying anything. This is | mainly a debugging tool, but can be useful as a sanity check | before allowing pg_resetxlog to proceed for real. This seems to have same meaning to the help message. "For debugging use" also supports your way of understanding the option, I suppose. > Anyway, I think that making -n option display all the values that -f option > changes would be useful.
