Subject: Optional regex option with required file option results in wrong error message on bad input.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 514b
This is with v0.1.0. Program has an optional regex option (say "--foo") and a required readable file option. If the user does not specify the regex option or gives a good value for it, option parsing works. However, if the user specifies a bad value for the regex option, the resulting error indicates that the name of the regex option is not a readable file (e.g. "--foo" isn't a valid file), rather than complaining about the bad regex option value. Test case in the form used in the distribution attached.
