Specifying Arguments

WebCopy is quite flexible in how command line arguments can be specified.

Argument Names

The WebCopy client supports two different prefixes for denoting a command line argument - a forward slash (/) or a hyphen (-).

For example, both of these arguments mean the same thing:


Argument Values

Many of WebCopy 's command line arguments require a value following the argument name. Values can be prefixed with either a space (), an equals sign (=) or a colon (:)

As with the above example, the following three items are seen as the same by WebCopy :

/format png

If an argument value contains a space, then the entire value must be surrounded with either single or double quotes. For example:

/ac "Created with Cyotek  WebCopy "
