The manual page says:

    List all features of all layers (used instead of having to give
    layer names as arguments). 

This is not a really clear answer for Antonio's question: when I read 
this the first time, I thought this flag was meant to display 
information about more layers, not to get more information about one 
layer. Especially difficult when English is not your first language and 
you are not Finnish :-)
