I have examined the documentation provided with 1.19-rc1, and see that

withdraw this as a reported bug.
Effectively the argument for '-P' is optional.
Dear all, feedback about making the argument mandatory, and about the
default number of lines to show (currently 3) is welcome.
To be more accurate, the proper
version is "/usr/local/share/info/ddrescue.info", but there was an older
version "/user/share/info/ddrescue.info.gz" dated from June of 2012. Did
you make a change in the past on where the info file was located? Or is
that from someones packaging? Maybe I had used the Ubuntu repository to
install once previously?
Before installing ddrescue from source you should remove any previous
ddrescue package installed by your distro. Distros usually compress info
files and man pages, and "make install" does not overwrite the stale
The same problem arises if ddrescue is installed in '/usr' and then also
in '/usr/local' (or vice versa).
