Look, in the following four command lines executed in the shell:


su fred

su - fred

su -l fred

- in all four of them:

"su" is a command

"fred" is an argument (wherever it is present)

"-" (surrounded by spaces on both sides) and "-l" are command options

This is standard terminology used in UNIX, Linux, etc for several 
decades. And finally, RTFM, please.

And also, can we close this thread, please.
