mysqlbackup.exe --help reference my.cnf file.  Windows doesn't have a my.cnf file.  Also, mysqlbackup --version outputs InnoDB Backup Utility v 1.8.0.  I don't believe that is accurate either.

How to repeat:
run mysqlbackup.exe --help and review output

This is not a documentation bug. The help output of MySQL programs is controlled by the respective teams. Changing category and reassigning to other team lead for this reason.

i) ./mysqlbackup --version should print

mysqlbackup version 1.8 MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.5.2
Copyright (c) 2002, 2010, Oracle and/or its affiliates.

ii) Regarding my.cnf files
  mysqlbackup has a help text 'similar' to ibbackup.
  ibbackup  has only .cnf files all over it's help text.

Based on recent decisions, We are not fixing this in 3.5.2 for the following reasons.

i) version 1.8.0 is correct.
ii) There is a need to change ibbackup help text also, which for 3.5.2 is a low priority.
