Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLI-179) Needs "standalone" options that can be used even if required options are not set
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2017 09:20:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-179?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16092834#comment-16092834

Ingo Weiss commented on CLI-179:
--------------------------------

[~ebourg], I don't quite understand your suggestion here. If I set the option group as required
then it will require to have a --help or --version but that doesn't translate to "if --help
or --version are provided, skip the required options list outside this option group".

> it is currently impossible to have options like "help" or "version" if we also have some
required options. The parsing results in an error "Missing parameters".
> But for an "help" or "version" option, it would be usefull to display the wanted information,
even if required options are not set.
