Yes, you've stumbled upon a weird feature of our command line argument
processing: generally most programs (including the GUI) use a very
flexible syntax we call "PHIL" (Python Hierarchial Interface
Language),  which would be this:


without the leading dashes.  In some of the newer programs, including
most anything I've written, boolean parameters can be expressed one of
two ways:


but that only applies to booleans.  Any other value needs the "="
symbol and no dashes.  Unfortunately since we can't even get everyone
to agree to use the PHIL syntax there is still some inconsistency in
how the different programs in Phenix accept input.
