|0003282||Doomseeker||[All Projects] Bug||public||2017-10-03 05:42||2017-10-07 08:56|
|Platform||x86_64 (really cross-platform)||OS||Debian GNU/Linux||OS Version||buster/sid|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003282: Omitting file from --version-json command line parameter doesn't print to standard output|
|Description||The --version-json command line parameter requires a file. It should be changed to optional, and output to stdout at least when the file is omitted after the parameter.|
|Steps To Reproduce|
$ doomseeker --version-json [05:35:51] No file specified!
doomseeker --version-json /dev/stdoutworks. This is not ideal, and doesn't work very well with shell redirection to cat/less/more etc.
This should be shell-agnostic to any POSIX-like shell, but my choice of shell here was mksh:
$ echo $SHELL /bin/mksh
By the way, the --help command describes the file to be optional (when it really is not) with brackets:
--version-json [file] Prints version info on Doomseeker and all plugins in JSON format to specified file, then closes the program.
I agree. The reason I omitted that originally was because this cmdline arg is used for preparing the update packages for auto-updater. On Windows, programs compiled with /SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWS won't print anything to stdout/stderr. Hence it's always necessary to pass the argument.
It won't do harm to also support the argumentless version.
