    Description

      PosixParser doesn't stop on "--" tokens if the option preceding the token expects an argument. GnuParser is not affected by this issue.

      Test case:

      public void testDoubleHyphenToken() throws Exception
      {
          Options options = new Options();
          options.addOption(OptionBuilder.hasArg().create('n'));
          options.addOption(OptionBuilder.create('m'));
      
          CommandLine cl = parser.parse(options, new String[] { "-n", "--", "-m" });
      
          assertTrue(cl.hasOption("n"));
          assertFalse(cl.hasOption("m"));
      }
