Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-1565) cassandra-cli use consistant flags and improve error messages
Date Tue, 18 Jan 2011 15:48:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1565?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jonathan Ellis updated CASSANDRA-1565:
--------------------------------------

         Reviewer: xedin
      Description: 
nodetool uses "-h" to specify the host to connect to but cassandra-cli uses "-host" which
is a pain to remember.

More importantly, if you do use "-h" then there's no error!  If you do this and then try to
"show keyspaces" or some such you just get an entirely accurate though confusing "not connected
to a cluster" error.

1. Make the flags consistant amongst all the tools where appropriate.

2. If you supply a flag to a tool it doesn't recognise then the tool should error immediately
and display its usage message.
