Subject [jira] [Resolved] (DAEMON-240) Undocumented and inconsistent behaviour of multi-valued registry entries
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 15:59:59 GMT


Mladen Turk resolved DAEMON-240.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 1.0.9

Resolved by disabling intermixing -- and ++ options on the same command line.
This means that either --option or any number of ++option can be used, but not together

> The behaviour of option processing for multi-valued registry entries is partly undocumented,
and inconsistent.
> --Option and ++Option are only documented in the context of a single invocation of procrun.
> The documentation should be updated to clarify that ++Option can be used in a separate
invocation of procrun (update service) to append values to the registry.
> ==
> The documentation implies that --Option resets the value.
> This is only true if the ++Option is not used at the same time - if the ++Option is used
anywhere on the command-line, then all the options are appended to any existing value in the
> The behaviour of mixed --Option and ++Option should either be fixed so that --Option
clears any existing settings, or the existing behaviour should be documented.
