No, all the args start with a single ‘-‘.


For example, with the following code:


    po::options_description desc;


        ( "config-file", po::value< std::string >( & strConfigFile
)->default_value( defaultConfigFilePath.native_file_string() ) );


I am able to call my program with a –config-file my_config_file.cfg command

Objet : [Boost-users] [Boost.Program_options] Is there a way to have
alloptions specifiedwith a single dash instead of double?


I'm interested in switching over the command line processing of an existing
tool to use program_options.
However, all of the args are of the format '-foo -bar -whatever 1' etc.
As far as I can tell from the docs it seems like by default the
program_options library assumes args all start with a '--' or have single
character short names that start with a single dash. Is there a way to
coerce it into the behavior I'm looking for?

Thanks for any tips!
