           Summary: ssh -h " Displayed as illegal options " in SSH 3.9
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.9p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: ashok at visolve.com

In Openssh 3.9 We have Option -h ( Basic help )  dispalyed in the SSH Usage as 
well as SSH man page 
But when we try this as "ssh -h" , 
we are get Message as  "ssh: illegal option -- h"  log given below 

# ssh -h
ssh: illegal option -- h
usage: ssh [-1246AaCfghkMNnqsTtVvXxY] [-b bind_address] [-c cipher_spec]
           [-D port] [-e escape_char] [-F configfile] [-i identity_file]
           [-L port:host:hostport] [-l login_name] [-m mac_spec] [-o option]
           [-p port] [-R port:host:hostport] [-S ctl] [user@]hostname [command]

To avoid this we have include the 'h' character in getopt( ) as given below   

In ssh.c # 

242          while ((opt = getopt(ac, av,
243          "1246ab:c:e:fgi:hkl:m:no:p:qstvxACD:F:I:L:MNPR:S:TVXY")) != -1) {
244                  switch (opt) {
