The values are:

* physical volume device name
* volume group name
* physical volume size in kilobytes
* internal physical volume number
* physical volume status
* physical volume (not) allocatable
* current number of logical volumes on this physical volume
* physical extent size in kilobytes
* total number of physical extents
* free number of physical extents
* allocated number of physical extents

-d, –debug
Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).
-h, –help
Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.
-s, –short
