Just an FYI...

You *may* be right, however...

"Standards" dictate that "flags" can be combined into a single
parameter. This is "eased" (debatable IMO) by the "getopts" function in
bash, getopt(1) command and getopt(3) function call for C et al.

Unfortunately, *some* few programs do not implement this correctly. But
over the years, as programs have been "cleaned up" and replaced, their
number has (thankfully) diminished.

I note the OP has solved it.
