Hi Jidanni:

I think you have a point here in that its not explicitly specified that the 
print option will list the specified device partition.  But the print option 
*is* explained and  there are examples of the use of print in the info pages.  
The only thing that I would consider including is another example of how you 
could use the print argument in a non-interactive way.
Care to make a contribution to parted.  It would be greatly appreciated :)
