I came across some problem using 'twistd' utility - that I would not have expected from it. The problem is - using 'twistd' to start application that requires command-line arguments. In other words, I would expect that 'twistd' passes command-line arguments to Python application - just as Python does.
But... I get following error:
Usage: twistd [options]
--savestats save the Stats object rather than the text output of
-o, --no_save do not save state on shutdown
-e, --encrypted The specified tap/aos/xml file is encrypted.
/usr/bin/twistd: option -a not recognized
when application is started either as 'twistd -y <fileName.py>' or 'twistd --file <fileName.py>' followed by a list of command-line arguments
My question is: how is it possible to use 'twistd' to start applications that do require command-line arguments? Does anyone have suggestions?
In other words, I want to be able to start application using 'twistd' - just as it would have been started using standard Python:
> python <fileName.py> [argList]
> twistd -y <fileName.py> [argList]
Second question to Twisted development team: how such an important case has slipped attention? I suggest this to be added to bug fix requests, with high priority.
