Sorry, I should have been clearer. I know how to do multiple occurances of
options that require a value, what I want though is multiple occurances of
a switch. A single switch can be done with something like
("verbose,v", bool_switch(), "increase verbosity");
but this fails with a multiple_occurrences exception if more than one -v
option is supplied.
Multiple boolean options can be done with something like
("verbose,v", value<std::vector<bool> >(), "increase verbosity");
but this requires that each option is given a value, such as
$ myprogram -v true -v true -v true
which is not what I want. I want instead to be able to use a command line
$ myprogram -v -v -v
