Re: [Xen-devel] xm create option parsing..

As far as I can see, "xm create -c vmid=1" will create a domain and
attach to its console while "xm create vmid=1 -c" won't. Any reason for this? The option parsing routines xm/opts.py and xm/create.py seems substantial enough.

It's an artifact of getopt - it stops parsing options at
the first non-option. So

xm create -c vmid=1

sets the -c option, whereas

xm create vmid=1 -c


It think there's a getopt flag to process options anywhere
in the args, but this is a problem for a multicommand like xm
that has its own options as well as subcommand options.

Basically options (-x, --x) have to precede args.
