Sometimes I want to pass an argument on the command line with no name, say a command like
wc , which takes a filename as input:
With the flag package, it looks like every flag has to be given a name, with a default value if unspecified.
filename := flag.String("filename", "foo.txt", "Which file to count the words for")
However I don’t want a default value, I want the program to exit with an error code if an argument is not specified. How would I add a required argument to a Go binary?
I would also like to be able to parse arguments with type information, so just checking the Args() directly doesn’t quite do it.
