A sentence in the man page is incomplete:

-#, --progress-bar
Make curl display progress information as a progress bar instead of the

version: curl 7.22.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.22.0 OpenSSL/1.0.1 zlib/1.2.3.4 libidn/1.23 librtmp/2.3
Ubuntu precise: curl 7.22.0-3ubuntu4

    How are you viewing this man page? This sentence is complete in ver. 7.21.5 & git HEAD, and in the --manual output in 7.21.5:

    $ curl --manual |grep -A 2 progress-bar
    -#/--progress-bar
    Make curl display progress information as a progress bar instead
    of the default statistics.

    This doesn't look like a curl problem. If the man page is truncated in Ubuntu, then you should file a bug with Ubuntu to have it fixed there.
