TCC V9 startup option documentation

#1
1/ Short form help
------------------
(executing "%_cmdspec /?" from a TCC session)

The /H option is neither in the command format, nor in the option list.
The /I option is in the command format, but not explained in the option
list.

2/ Help topic "cmdlineopts.htm"
-------------------------------

The description of how to start TCC without using any .INI file does not
include the /II or /I options.

WAD - they're debugging options, not for general use.

Beg your pardon - they were announced as new features!

/H run in hidden window

/I[ips] run without one or more of the standard startup features:
/Ii no .INI
/Ip no plugins
/Is no TCSTART
/I none of the above

Why do you now say they are debugging features? I make frequent use of many
combinations.

Because they're intended for isolating problems, not for normal use.
99.9% of our users will *never* use any of them; almost all of the
remainder will use them once or twice to fix a startup problem.

The quick help does not include every option for every command; that
would simply add clutter and confusion. If you want the complete help,
use the online help file.
