Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-4054) Command Line interprets bogus options
Date Sat, 25 Apr 2009 01:27:45 GMT


Brett Porter commented on MNG-4054:

John, that does reproduce the error.

it behaved like -X OXOXOXOXOXOX, not -XOXOXOXOXOXOX (I'm guessing should say -O is an invalid
option if we allow combined, or that -XOXOXOXOXOXOX is not a valid option).

Very minor anyway.

> The command line interpreter obviously only matches against the starting portion of a
known option. 
> To execute offline, this is acceptable: mvn -outside
> To execute in debug mode, this is acceptable mvn -XOXOXOXOXOX
> You can do this with any option. Get the first couple letters right and you'll trigger
perhaps an unintended option.
