Two-Character Abbreviations


It would be nice to have the possibility to create commands with two-character abbreviations, e.g. MyLongParameter can be shortened with mp, while MyVeryLongParameter can be shortened with mv.

I have an application providing already 15 (!) commandline parameters and some do not even use a short character which is contained in the long verb.

Aren't aliases giving you this functionality already?

SwitchArgument showArgument = new SwitchArgument('s', "show", "Set whether show or not", true);

now you can use
on the commandline.

At the moment we're using the Attribute-Syntax. I don't see a way to provide this in good way:

/// <summary>
    /// Gets or sets the input file.
    /// </summary>
    [ValueArgumentAttribute(typeof(string), 'i', "input", Description = "Specifies the input file", Optional = false)]
    public string InputFile { get; set; }
Or is there a way to add aliases to the ValueArgumentAttribute?
