Command line tools should do what people expect. It’s a bit chaotic to navigate how to parse command line parameters since there are many conventions.
I’ve added code to try to infer value for a parameter using it’s ordinal position when there are no ordinary parameters present before the inferred parameter value.
This simply means that it should be possible to write:
my.exe --param1=something --param2=someother
my.exe something someother
