            Bug ID: 21351
           Summary: documentation for --relax
           Product: binutils
           Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ld
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org

  Target Milestone: ---

patch containing alternative

The documentation for --relax isn't clear about whether or not the use of
--no-relax causes an error when the feature is not supported on a platform.

The sentence in question is:
"On platforms where --relax is accepted the option --no-relax can be used to
disable the feature."
(there's a comma missing after "accepted")

The set containing all platforms has previously been divided into those where
it is 1. supported or 2. ignored. 
("On platforms where this is not supported, --relax is accepted, but ignored.")

If I'm not mistaken, the conditional "On platforms where --relax is accepted"
means "all platforms".

Imho, "[On all platforms,] --no-relax can be used to disable the feature"
should then also distinguish between supported and merely ignored.

There's a patch with a proposal attached.
