[GRADLE-1493] Execution of "tasks" task displays instructions that are clearly wrong Created: 25/Apr/11 Updated: 04/Jan/13 Resolved: 27/Apr/11

At the bottom of out put from "gradle tasks" is:
To see all tasks and more detail, run with -all
There is no such switch. If the poor user tries to follow the instructions, they are rewarded with error messages.
I set priority to Major even though there is no direct functional impact, because I think the impact to new users is "major". Help tasks such as "tasks" are critical for new users, and instructing new users to do things wrong is a great way to turn off tentative users from Gradle.

The instructions say:
To see all tasks and more detail, run with --all.
Notice that it's --all not -all. gradle tasks --all works just fine.

I apologize. I had attempted to test both before and after "tasks", but must have accidentally used a single hyphen when I used it after. Thanks for explaining.
