Hi Saket,

It's the OS's command line parser that it expanding the wild card,
this will expand the command line with a list of files, only the first
of which will be prefixed by a -d.

I don't know of other help tools that might provide the functionality
you are after.  osgdem is just a small application on top of the vpb
library that does all the real work so you could just write you own
equivilant to osgdem and have your own custom parsing.
