Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLI-218) Add function similar to getOptionValue() that returns last value
Date Sat, 30 Apr 2011 15:33:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-218?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13027338#comment-13027338
] 

Sven commented on CLI-218:
--------------------------

Also, the documentation of getOptionValue() doesn't even mention whether the last or first
value is returned. This should be fixed as well.

> Often, you can invoke command with the same option multiple time. For example
>   java -cp test1 -cp test2
> even though the option only accepts one value.
> I believe, that the majority of programs then use the last value (test2 in this case).
> However, getOptionValue() return the first value for some weired reason.
> I believe, you should add a function called getLastOptionValue() (in class CommandLine)
and getLastValue() (in class Option) to allow easy access to the last value.
