Enumeration

GLibOptionArg

Declaration

enum GLib.OptionArg

Description [src]

The GOptionArg enum values determine which type of extra argument the options expect to find. If an option expects an extra argument, it can be specified in several ways; with a short option: -x arg, with a long option: --name arg or combined in a single argument: --name=arg.
