Error description

  • The page "Creating .hep files for the plug-ins" mentions that
    you can use the arguments field in a helper file to pass
    arguments to a plugin. However, this is misleading as it implies
    that the argument is passed internally to the plugin code,
    whereas in fact the argument is passed to the COMMAND LINE.
    Please explicitly state that the "argument" is a "command line
    argument" to avoid ambiguity.

Problem conclusion

  • Changed the description of the "arguments" option to:
    
    -arguments - use this option to specify command-line arguments
    that should be appended to the command that you specified with
    the command option in the .hep file.
