I guess, this is one of many options you describe? In that case you could use variablelist: <variablelist> <varlistentry> <term><option>-m</option></term> <term><option>--mode</option>=<replaceable>mode</replaceable></term> <listitem> <para>Set the mode of created directories to mode. mode is symbolic or octal mode as in <citerefentry> <refentrytitle>chmod</refentrytitle> <manvolnum>1</manvolnum> </citerefentry>. Relative modes assume an initial mode of <literal>a=rwx</literal>. </para> </listitem> </varlistentry> <!-- Add more varlistentrys with the same structure --> </variablelist> Hope that helps. -- Gruß/Regards, Thomas Schraitle
