Committed as obvious.
If I remember my English grammar correctly, since the cases you change
here all use "command line" to qualify a noun ("option") I think they
should be hyphenated, so "command-line option".
I agree and my first attempt was changing it in this way but a grep for
command.line shows that "command line" is used all over the place and
command-line very seldomly. I went for consistency.
