Trying to call an
executable Octave script with the option -display I found an odd
behavior. This behavior can already be found in the trivial script
#! /usr/bin/octave -qf disp('Hello world');
Calling this script as
./hello ./hello -disp xyz ./hello -display
yields, as expected, the output ‘Hello world’. However, no output appears if I call the script as
./hello -display xyzI could easily avoid the problem by changing, in my software, the name of the option (e.g. ‘disp’ instead of ‘display’). However, I am curious to understand what goes wrong.
My Octave version is 4.2.2 (running under Ubuntu).
