"rip --help" also doesn't provide any commands or usage information.

Try "rip drive --help".

What morituri calls "commands" are what I personally would call subcommands.

Thanks for reporting this anyway - I dare lower the severity and retitle as I see is more relevant. Please do tell me if you disagree.

And feel free to post more bugs and suggestions (i.e. "wishlist" bugs). Morituri is quite young and I imagine upstream could use some encouragement from enthusiastic users :-)
