#3752: No detected unknown parameter
 Reporter: Alex Bukreev <bucreev@…> | Owner: vladimir_prus
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.42.0 | Component: program_options
  Version: Boost 1.41.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |

Comment(by vladimir_prus):

 It should not give an error. It's by design that positional options are
 passed through, via the vector<option> that parse_command_line returns. I
 think that forcing processing positional options via the variables map
 would be an inconvenience. Other libraries, such as getopt, only extract
 options, leaving positionals to the user to handle.
