       options starting with two dashes (`-').

              "echo help | ez-ipupdate -c -"

       -d, --daemon
              run as a daemon periodicly updating if necessary

       -e, --execute <command>
              shell command to execute after a successful update

              address to send mail to if bad things happen

       -o, --offline
              set to off line mode

       -R, --run-as-user <user>
              change to <user> for  running,  be  ware  that  this  can  cause
              problems  with handeling SIGHUP properly if that user can't read
              the config file. also it can't write it's pid  file  to  a  root

       -Q, --run-as-euser <user>
              change  to  effective <user> for running, this is NOT secure but
              it does solve the problems with run-as-user and config files and
              pid files.
