Yes, all good points. the cmdline.ss library avoids this problem by requiring spaces: -xall is the same as -x -a -l -l not the same as -x all regardless of the comandline specification. Also, it doesn't use the --long-name=x it still uses spaces, ie: --long-name x so that would be further incompatability. Robby
