New to Linux and have a few questions about command line arguments:
Let's say there a command-line tool called
widget that takes an argument called
fizz. I've seen all different types of arguments:
widget -fizz widget --fizz widget \fizz widget -f
Whats the difference in how these are used? Does the command-line tool decide how to determine them differently, or does Linux know they all mean the same thing, but feeds them to the application differently?
Could I customize my own way of passing the (already existing)
widget tool its
Thanks in advance!
