      Description

      java -help gives:
      """ --module-path <module path>...
                        A : separated list of directories, each directory
                        is a directory of modules.
      """
      but the tool docs https://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/tools/java.htm#JSWOR624 give:

      """--module-path module path... or -p module path
      Searches for directories from a semicolon-separated (;) list of directories. Each directory is a directory of modules.
      """

      Increasing the colon-semicolon confusion!

      These should be fixed to be consistent and correct.
