The --help and --version options should be shown at the end of the options help text, not at the start, and in the other order, i.e.:

  -V, --version        Print version and exit
  -h, --help           Print help and exit

Also, the wording could be improved, as per current coreutils/grep:

  -V, --version        output version information and exit
  -h, --help           display help and exit

Note that the help strings should not start with an upper-case letter.
