Unix Programming - Command-Line Options - Portability to Other Operating Systems

Portability to Other Operating Systems

To have command-line options, you have to have a command line. The MS-DOS family does, of course, though in Windows it's hidden by a GUI and its use is discouraged; the fact that the option character is normally ‘/’ rather than ‘-’ is merely a detail. MacOS classic and other pure GUI environments have no close equivalent of command-line options.
