I had to laugh when I read about the new openGL command line option.
There are two different options: true and True. As in:
To silently enable the OpenGL-based pipeline, specify the
following system property on the command line:
To receive verbose console output about whether the OpenGL-based pipeline is
initialized successfully for a particular screen, specify “True” (note the
uppercase T) :
In fact, I have always been a little bothered with the command line options that we get with Java commands.
I am from the GNU school that says:
There are short hand options, and long hand options.
Short hand options use one – sign. Long hand options use two –.
I don’t know HOW many times I type:
% java –version
% java -v
before I get to the correct
% java -version
I would have much prefered to have -cp and –classpath for example. I wish they followed that convention. I also want java –help to show me all of the possible options (including X options for a particular JVM?)
Oh well. Maybe it is just me!
