Thanks I see that now, but other than rawdec.c being the
source file name where does the name rawdec come from?
It is not mentioned in the help for:
-formats, -codecs -decoders, -encoders

I had this image of -h full being a concatenation
of the information in -formats, -codecs etc. and
was looking to see if I had missed any options.
Cannot seems a bit strong, I personally think a
<none> for no options would make a nice reference but
not my call if that's the policy.
