-h only shows the options --version, -h and --help. With --separator and --fields the rest indeed is easy. Maybe I should have read the online manual more carefully.
That is why Kovid said in post #11 to use
Code:
calibredb list -h
If you run that command you see all the options, as shown under the spoiler.
Spoiler:
Code:
C:>calibredb list -h
Usage: calibredb.exe list [options]

List the books available in the calibre database.


Whenever you pass arguments to calibredb.exe that have spaces in them, enclose the arguments in quotation marks

  --version             show program's version number and exit

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
