Running get_iplayer 3.22.0-MSWin32 from a Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (Version 6.1.7601) CMD shell.


Can the options:
be incorporated into get_iplayer, please?

From get_iplayer's point of view these could be considered boolean options since it will either be running a user command or not running a user command. Hence, it could be argued that they should behave like other boolean options and allow the "no-" prefix as specified in the documentation.

I have --command-tv and --command-radio in my preferences to do some post-download processing, but today I had an occasion to not require them and discovered the "no-" versions are not available.

Admittedly, I've had these options in my preferences for quite a while and this is the first time I'd have made use of a --no-command-tv. So, these are not features I'd be often using. Also, I got around it by using a blank --command-tv on the command line to override the one in my preferences:
get_iplayer …--command-tv ""…
(It hasn't escaped my notice that this empty command, with the space and two double-quotes requires the exact same number of keystrokes as prefixing the option with the characters "no-".)
