Currently, all I get from running elasticsearch -h on a Homebrew install is:

Usage: /usr/local/bin/elasticsearch [-f] [-h] [-p pidfile]

-f was not obvious to me. We should add a basic man page that at least covers:

OPTIONS:
  -f: start in the foreground
  -p <filename>: log the pid to a file (useful to kill it later)

+1. Also, when I do bin/elasticsearch --help it just hangs there. This is with 1.0.1 (Version: 1.0.1, Build: 5c03844/2014-02-25T15:52:53Z, JVM: 1.7.0_45) on a Mac.

@kedarmhaswade Any long option parameter w/o a value (--param val with val missing, e.g. --version or --help) will send the script into a neverending busy-loop.
