Method

GLibOptionContextset_ignore_unknown_options

Declaration

void
g_option_context_set_ignore_unknown_options (
  GOptionContext* context,
  gboolean ignore_unknown
)

Description

Sets whether to ignore unknown options or not. If an argument is ignored, it is left in the argv array after parsing. By default, g_option_context_parse() treats unknown options as error.

This setting does not affect non-option arguments (i.e. arguments which don’t start with a dash). But note that GOption cannot reliably determine whether a non-option belongs to a preceding unknown option.

Available since:2.6

Parameters

ignore_unknown

Type: gboolean

TRUE to ignore unknown options, FALSE to produce an error when unknown options are met.
