WARNING: 'overwrite' option is invalid in default options file
#1
Hello guys,
I want to add "overwrite" option in the default config file using the following command:

Code:
get_iplayer --prefs-add --overwrite
But I got the following warnings:

WARNING: 'overwrite' option is invalid in default options file: /root/.get_iplayer/options
WARNING: 'overwrite = 1' will be ignored
INFO: Options file /root/.get_iplayer/options updated

Same with "force" option. Anything wrong with my command? Thanks.

For "invalid", read "not allowed". Use a preset instead.

I don't understand why it's invaid in the default config file now. I remembered that I used that before. It's convenient by just setting it in default. It seems that I have to specify it by using "get_iplayer --preset=" in the command line to make it work.

I agree with xiatian. Unless there's a good reason for removing overwrite and force from the defaults file (in which case it would be good to know what it is), please consider allowing them again.
