jdeps follows the GNU-style options which is different than the JDK
style. We discussed this issue about consistency and familiarity .
After using jdeps for some time, I admit that I find it hard to switch
to the new -c short option (and confusing too) but relatively easy to
move to --classpath option. Mixing both GNU-style and JDK-style
inconsistently adopting GNU style is not a good thing while GNU style is
the direction we are going (e.g. pack200 follows GNU style).
and its thread.
