thanks, that works great - the way it is now it is not possible any
more to "overwrite" your session if you close a Textadept instance and
have opened another instance from the command line. Further it's not
necessary to convert the file name to its full path (as it is not
saved in a session file). If you did for example (with the old
./textadept init.lua
and later started Textadept from somewhere else, init.lua couldn't be found.

Of course, this is better - as for the "arg_none" to me (non native
speaker) the distinction between a switch and an argument wasn't so
clear. (So "files_none" would be easier to understand, but I think
it's just fine.)

Below a correction and suggestion.


Line 14 in session.lua:
--   disabled by passing the command line switch '-n' or '--no-session' to
--   disabled by passing the command line switch '-n' or '--nosession' to
In args.lua
Changing the dialog box informative text to the title:
             '--title', 'Command line parameters',
             '--text', table.concat(help, '\n'),
             '--button1', 'gtk-ok')
