*Obsolete* 4.1i iMPACT - Command line "impact -help" or "impact -h" improperly invokes the GUI and reports "Command Line Error: unknown switch"

Description

Keywords: command line, -help, -h, option, iMPACT

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If I try to get a list of command line options in iMPACT by using "impact -h" or "impact -help," the GUI is invoked, and the following error is reported:

ERROR:iMPACT - Command Line Error: Unknown switch 'h'!

If the command line is examined, the help message is printed out correctly, but the GUI should not be invoked:

Command: impact -help, or impact -h
Description: Loads proper usage information at prompt but also launches the GUI and error
Error in GUI: ERROR:iMPACT - Command Line Error: unknown switch..."

Solution

This will be fixed in an upcoming software release.
