|This debug command accepts all kinds of parameters and prints one line for each parameter. All tools know the ARGTEST command.
|This debug command accepts (like ARGTEST) all kinds of parameters and prints one line for each parameter. After that, the parameter is treated as a filename with wildcards and all matching files are searched. All tools know the EXPAND command.
|This debugging command accepts all options and parameters and prints a list of the internal option values. The command is designed to test the option parameters. The non option parameters are completely ignored.

|Translate an exit code to a message name. If no exit code is entered, print a table with all error messages. All tools know the ERROR command.
|Scan the header of the entered files and print file type and path for each file as list. Wildcards and pipe characters are parsed. All tools know the FILETYPE command.
|Print a table with attributes for all known file types. If at least one keyword is entered, only matching file types are printed. A keyword is either a file type (like 'BRRES' or 'BMG') or one of the printed keywords (like 'ARCHIVE' or 'EXTRACT'). All tools know the FILEATTRIB command.
|Print predefined symbols of text parser to standard output. The LE-CODE specific symbols are included.
|Print a list with all parser functions including the LE-CODE specific functions. If one key ore more key entered, then only functions that match at least one key are printed.

|This commands helps to convert hex values into floating point numbers and vice versa. For each non empty parameter, a line with 4 bytes hex and a float, 8 bytes hex and a double float, and the parameter itself is printed. If a parameter begins with 'x' or '0x', it is a hex string, otherwise it is a floating point number.
The special parameters "+" and "-" mean: Increment or decrement the previous value by the smallest possible value. Use different increments for floats and doubles.
All conversions are done using big endian.

This makes changing the command of a long command line without removing useless options easier. It also helps to override wrong option permissions.
|Suppress cross reference comments.
|Define a directory for an SZS cache. The cache is used to generate LTA files when new compression is forced. Option --remove-dest is set automatically to protect cache integrity.
The idea behind the cache: Loading an SZS file and comparing the decompressed content is clearly faster than compressing the file.
|Set a new working directory for all following options, for all parameters and for the command execution. This option can be used multiple times, but for parameter parsing and for command execution only the last usage is relevant. Nevertheless,

|Enable the export mode and create small and machine readable text files for easy post processing.
|Enable extended error messages. This includes a source file and line reference. Logging level 1 activates it too.
|The tools analyse input files and reject files with invalid data structures. If --force is set, little repairable issues are ignored and a warning is printed.
Option »--kmp force« does the same, but only for KMP files.

|Ignore non existing source files without warning.
|Process the input files in order of the command line and don't delete duplicates.
|Use format %04x instead of %03x for LE-CODE slots to enable uniform slot numbers if slots >4095 are used.
|This option is completely ignored by wlect. It only exists due to compatibility with the other tools.
|Use this file as definition file to patch LE-CODE. The file format can be LE-BIN or any supported CT-CODE file (BRRES, TEX0, CT-CODE or CT-TEXT).
|Delete LEX sections without any impact. This option is executed after all --lt-* options.
|Remove LEX setion FEAT (features) if exists. It is executed after --lex-purge. --lex-rm-features is an alternative name.
|Define a search directory for all included tracks. Files found in this directory are linked to the directory specified by option --track-dir. If linking fails, the file is copied.
|Load immediately the file to fill an internal message pool. The option can be used multiple times to fill the message pool by different sources. A later message overrides the previous message.
The internal message pool is patched by all --patch-bmg options.
|Read in a CATEGORY file and replace the internal category database with the content. https://ct.wiimm.de/export/category is the authoritative source for this.
|Read in a PREFIX file and replace the internal prefix database with the content. https://ct.wiimm.de/export/prefix is the authoritative source for this.
|Define a file to log chache activities. Use '-' to log to stdout or stderr. The file is openend in append-mode.

|Load a BMG file and add the messages to the macro library; already existing entries are replaced. The macro library is accessed by escape sequence
|This security option defines the maximum file size for input files; larger files are ignored with a warning. The default unit is MiB and the default size is 100 MiB (2 GiB for LTA); that should be enough for standard usage.
|Define the maximum terminal width (number of columns) for help and some other messages. The default is 120. This option is ignored if --width is set.
|Define a search directory for all included tracks. Files found in this directory are moved to the directory specified by option --track-dir. If moving fails, the file is copied and the source removed.
|Define a search directory for all included tracks. Files found in this directory are moved to the directory specified by option --track-dir, but only if a file has not more than one hard link. This guarantees an unique version of the file. If the file has more hard links or moving fails, the file is copied and the source removed.
|Deactive colorized text. This is the default, if an output file is not a terminal.
|Suppress output of @ECHO commands while scanning text files.
|Suppress the syntax information section in BMG text files.
|Forbid the internal usage of a pager.
|Disable parameter support in decoded KMP text files.
|Disable wildcard parsing and use each filename exactly as specified.

|Used together with option --order-by: Re-distribute the tracks of all cups beginning with Mushroom Cup.
|Load the BMG file and filter track names. Then before creating output files, re-distribute the tracks of the additonal cups (9-) to the same cups by the order of the read track names. Tracks without BMG reference are placed at the end of all tracks. This option modifes only the track order of the cups, but will not change any name.
|Overwrite already existing files without warning and ignore option --number.
|This option specifies a BMG patch mode. Some of the modes need a parameter or a file name of a BMG patch file (raw or text BMG), both separated by an equal sign. Modes with required file names are PRINT, REPLACE, INSERT, OVERWRITE, DELETE, MASK, EQUAL and

If this option is used multiple times, all patch files will be processed in the entered order.
|If set, the names of the CUP1 and CSR1 sections are patched by the loaded BMG files directly after loading the source files.
|Enable or disable the performance monitor. Mode is one of
|If a name begins with a plus sign, then all characters up to the first space are recognized as a plus prefix. The first part consists of all the plus signs followed by any other characters. The first character of the second part is used to determine the sort value. If the second part is empty, then the last plus sign is used instead.
The higher sorting value is now calculated from the number of plus signs in the first part, the more plus signs, the smaller the value. The first character from the second part determines the lower value. If it is in parameter CHARS then the position determines the value, otherwise the ASCII value to which 500 is added.
|Preserve file times (atime+mtime) while converting or copying files.
|Be quiet and print only error messages. Multiple use is possible. Previous use of --verbose is reverted. The impact is command dependent. If set at least three times, almost all error messages will be suppressed.
