Command Line Switches
<switch>::= <switch_symbol><switch_characters>[<option>] <switch_symbol> ::= '/' | '-'
On the command line, a switch consists of a switch specifier, either a dash (-) or a forward slash (/), followed by the name of the switch. Switch names cannot be abbreviated.
Some switches take an argument after the switch name. No spaces or tabs are allowed within a switch specification. Switch names are not case sensitive, but arguments can be case sensitive.
Switch can be used in any place in command line.
