+Bug#: 62668
+Product: Mono: Compilers
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: C#
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com                            
+ReportedBy: colin@breame.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Invalid switched for mcs
+Using an invalid switch for mcs results in an incorrect error message:
+$ mcs -notavalidswitch *.cs
+error CS2001: Source file '-notavalidswitch' could not be opened
+Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
+It would be better if mcs noticed that the switch was invalid and reported
+with an appropriate message. e.g. "Unknown switch '-notavalidswitch'.  Use
+mcs --help for help" etc.
