Subject [GitHub] commons-cli pull request #7: Add an addRequiredOption method
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:24:45 GMT

    Add an addRequiredOption method

    This pull request adds an addRequiredOption method, which creates an Option with setRequired(true).
    This is really useful, given the amount of projects I saw doing things like:
    Options options = new Options();
    options.addOption( "a", "all", false, "do not hide entries starting with ." );
    options.addOption( "A", "almost-all", false, "do not list implied . and .." );
    options.addOption( "b", "escape", false, "print octal escapes for nongraphic " + "characters"
    // ... more addOptions like these and then
    Option stuff = new Option( "c", "stuff", true, "do not list implied . and .." );
    options.addOption( stuff );
    // And many more required options like this one
    This pull request proposes an auxiliary method to create a required option, so that these
options could just be added with.
    `options.addRequiredOption( "c", "stuff", true, "do not list implied . and .." );`
