Searching both open and closed trackers revealed nothing about this
option. I wonder when it was last used?

Anyway, by experimentation I discovered that the correct syntax, on
both Linux and Windows, is:

lilypond -dread-file-list read-file-list.txt


lilypond -d read-file-list read-file-list.txt

Note the lack of an equals sign.

What this option appears to do is to tell Lilypond to treat the
Lilypond source file as a list of files to process.

I think the following is the topic of your other post, Eluze: what I
also found was that the file containing the list of files to process
must have Linux line endings. A Windows plain text file is not
correctly interpreted.
