2.2 Command Line Arguments
empty, in which case the option string is not changed.
Because FunnelWeb processes its command line arguments from left to right, a
later argument can cancel the effect of an earlier one. For example fw +t t will
result in the t option ending up
. This allows users to set up their own default
arguments by defining a symbol in their operating system s command language.
For example, a Unix user who wants FunnelWeb to delete all identical output
files and create a documentation file on each run with a default .typ extension
could simply place the following definition in their "
alias fw fw +d +t.typ
These default options can then later be easily overridden on the command line.
