Try "xfsrestore --help | more", which puts the version on the last line. For
some odd reason "xfsrestore --help" puts the version at the top of the help
screen but, "xfsrestore --help | more" puts it on the last line, obviating
the need to "look through the tons of lines generated with --help". Maybe
these SGI programmers are deceptively good at user interface design :), as
well as at engineering this really high-performance filesystem.
