Strange order-dependancy with command parameters SymbianUK05/Symbian(Release 5.0.8 |June 18, 2001) at 12/03/2001 03:53:21 AM, Serialize complete at 12/03/2001 03:53:21 AM

I've run into a strange problem with order-dependancy in the swish-e 
command line options.  Basically, putting -w before the -c results in a 
"err: Specify directories or files to index" error whereas putting it 
afterward correctly returns the results.

Here's the two command lines used:

 >swish-e -w HBufC -c swish.conf -f ./indexes/web.index
 >err: Specify directories or files to index.
swish-e -c swish.conf -w HBufC -f ./indexes/web.index
<Results returned as normal>

This does not seem to correspond to any restrictions in the 
documentation, and the rest of swish-e appears to not care about 
argument ordering.

I'm using swish-e-2.1-dev-24-2001-11-27
