Description John McBride 2007-05-10 11:49:35 EDT
Description of problem:

Previous flex releases parsed args such that "flex -is" was acceptable. This
release requires the form "flex -i -s" to do the same thing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Run flex in older and newer fedora releases.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run flex in fc6 : args "-i -s" and "-is" are equivalent
2. run flex in fc7devel : args "-is" shows an error
Actual results:
%flex -is
flex: option `i' doesn't allow an argument
Try `flex --help' for more information.

Expected results:
%flex -is

Fixed in rawhide.  This build won't do it to Fedora 7, but I will push it as an
update post-release.
