      Description

      Partial matching is a common feature among command line processing tools. It allows to use shorter option names as long as the abbreviation is not ambiguous.

      For example on Debian

      ls --he

      is equivalent to

      ls --help

      but

      ls --h

      returns the error "option `--h' is ambiguous", because 'h' is also the prefix of the --hide option.
