'-iconic' is documented in the "Icons X" node in the Emacs manual.  For
GNU programs it's usually always best to look in Info first:

,----[ (standards)Man Pages ]

| you spend on the man page is time taken away from more useful work. [..]
|    When a program changes only a little, you may feel that the
