OpenSSl functions ("apps"): Is arg order significant?

Tom Browder
Looking at the man page for dsa it doesn't seem that the order of arguments is critical as long, of course, as each arg that takes a value has an approriate entry.

If that is true for dsa, is it true for similar functions such as rsa, x509, etc.?

Thanks.

Best regards,

-Tom

You mean flags and values, like "-foo" and "-bar asdf" ?  Yes, the order of flags does not matter, except in some special cases that are (hopefully) noted in the docs.
