Hmm... either the documentation is wrong; or the clang-format version
10.0.0 you are was an early version 10 during development before the
release and did not have that feature yet?
$ clang-format-10 --version
Ubuntu clang-format version
$ clang-format-10 --help | grep 'dry-run'
--dry-run - If set, do not actually make the formatting
--ferror-limit=<uint> - Set the maximum number of clang-format
errors to emit before stopping (0 = no limit). Used only with --dry-run or -n
-n - Alias for --dry-run
You have probably seen that clang/llvm-11 was released; I guess a good
motivation for us to update our clang setup? :)
