Subject Re: [cli] grouping required options
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2011 11:20:38 GMT
Hi Thomas,

I'm not sure to understand your example. Your command line must either 
have o1+o2+o3 or o4+o5, right ?

Regarding --help, the solution is to have two command line definitions 
and parsing the arguments twice: first to detect the help option, then 
for all the arguments supported.
