[jira] Created: (CLI-155) Allow caller to define ordering of options in help message

Otto Fowler (Jira)
Allow caller to define ordering of options in help message
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CLI-155
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-155
             Project: Commons CLI
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: CLI-1.x
            Reporter: Mike DeLaurentis


It would be nice if the caller could define their own ordering of command-line options, as an alternative to alphabetical ordering. I see there's an OptionComparator class within HelpFormatter.  Maybe you could add a setOptionComparator(Comparator comp) method.
