[New-bugs-announce] [issue33343] Subcommand abbreviations

Victor Porton report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Victor Porton <porton at narod.ru>:

https://docs.python.org/3/library/argparse.html does not allow abbreviations for subparsers ("subcommands").

It seems inconsistent that long options can be abbreviated but subcommands cannot.

Either implement subcommand abbreviations or explain in the docs why there is none.
