If you want a zero-length parameter

Hm. Okay, you got me there. Mind you, in 30 years I don't remember ever having used a command that took a "zero length parameter".

Every command I'm aware of that takes a password has an option to supply it. And optional parameters always come at the end.

"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
