If an implicit short name is ambiguous, the
inspxe-cl
command reports a syntax error.
-option argument1,argument2
-option=argument1 -option=argument2
inspxe-cl
-option-file file1,file2
inspxe-cl
-option-file file1 -option-file file2
Make sure there are no spaces after commas.
You may mix and match syntax alternatives. For example, the following commands are equivalent:
inspxe-cl
-collect ti2 -result-dir myRes -suppression-file mySup -- myApp
inspxe-cl
-collect=ti2 -r myRes --s-f mySup -- myApp

Other Syntax Rules

  • Options that appear before
    [-- application [application options]]
    can appear in any order.
  • If an argument contains spaces, enclose the argument in quotation marks.
  • There are two ways to specify multiple options. One is to use multiple option=value pairs; the other is to use the option followed by a list of comma-separated values with no spaces.
  • Two single-character short names cannot be combined after a single dash.
  • Both short names and long names are case-sensitive. For example,
    -R
    is the short name of the
    report
    action, and
    -r
    is the short name of the
    result-dir
    action-option.
