3.1.2 Option Arguments

In Clon, there are different kinds of options: in addition to having a short and/or long name, an option may or may not take an argument. For those taking one, the argument may be either mandatory or optional. Then, there is also an additional, extended call syntax for some of them. But then again, that is not the whole story about getting an option’s value (see Option Retrieval). If everything goes well, you are now wondering whether you really want to use a command-line at all.
