Subject [jira] Commented: (CLI-138) No '--' option for terminating options processing
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2007 06:45:31 GMT


Russel Winder commented on CLI-138:

I think there needs to be a decision as to whether 2.x is a live line of activity.  If it
is then there needs to be a release so that people can switch to it.  If there is no enthusiasm
for a 2.x release and switching to it as the supported line, then features like this need
to be retrofitted to the 1.x line and perhaps a 1.2 issued with all the new stuff.

> It appears that neither 1.0 not 1.1 have a '--' option as the 'end processing options'
option.  This is immensely useful to allow parameter that are not options that start with
a hyphen.  grep for example does this.  I think it is a bug rather than an enhancement request,
I think Commons CLI should support '--' option.
