Create a simple guide with screenshots that explains how to start windows binary with parameters
Open, MediumPublic


Huggle is a fast diff browser application intended for dealing with vandalism on Wikimedia projects, written in C++ and Qt. More information:

This will help Windows users to understand this elementary operation. On Linux, you can easily start any binary with parameters using a terminal. For example huggle -v would put parameter "-v" to launch options.

It works in a similar way on windows, just users are not very familiar with presence of a terminal. In windows most of the programs are started using shortcuts and the parameters can be part of them. A simple guide that explains how to start a binary with example parameters could make it much easier for windows users to understand how to debug Huggle or start it in safe mode. (huggle --safe)

All terminal parameters can be found in terminalparser file.

Screenshot must be uploaded to commons with permissive license and this guide should be a part of Huggle manual on

It's not allowed to reuse some copyrighted material which is a part of various "tech sites" that explain this sort of stuff. This guide must be genuine and properly licensed for use by Wikimedia.

This task doesn't require any coding skill.
