Question mprime -b cli option gone?!?

This week I upgraded my mprime clients (linux and mac os x) to version 25.8 (was still using 24.x) and noticed that my startup script were not working anymore. This was due to the fact that the -b command line option was no longer working. Is there I reason this option disappeared or was i the only one using it, can't find any recent posts on it on this forum.

Of course I realize I can just use "mprime &" as a replacement.

Yes, -b has been de-supported.

It was there primarily to make it easy to launch 2 or more mprimes. That is no longer necessary.

Use the "&" syntax instead. Sorry for the inconvenience.

run it with the -h switch:

[root@centos-brick mprime]# ./mprime -h
Usage: mprime [-cdhmstv] [-aN] [-wDIR]
-c Contact the PrimeNet server, then exit.
-d Print detailed information to stdout.
-h Print this.
-m Menu to configure mprime.
-s Display status.
-t Run the torture test.
-v Print the version number.
-aN Use an alternate set of INI and output files.
-wDIR Run from a different working directory.
