Sounds good.

I write a lot of command-line utilities, some including some stuff similar to that.
However, I _never_ use appconfig. Some do use a custom XML file designed for them.

Your point 2 reminds me of VOS. Smile | :)
I haven't advanced my command line parser to that point though. Even many features of OpenVMS haven't been added yet.

One of the more recent features I added to the parser is the ability to set environment variables to hold commonly-used switches.
For instance, my TFSutil expects a /URL switch (which rarely changes), so
set TFSutil/URL=theURLoftheteamTFSproject
and the command line parser treats it as if it was included on the command line. Slick as snot.
