Default PFGW "Illegal option -S"

I would like to run multiple instances of pfgw from the same folder, and the documentation mentions this -S option:

I am calling from bash on linux like this:
Code:
$ ./pfgw64 -S foo.abc
Illegal option -S"
Is this feature really supported? How do I invoke it?

PFGW Version 3.8.3.64BIT.20161203.x86_Dev [GWNUM 28.6]

I can't answer your question, but why bother. You can copy and paste the PFGW folder in seconds and indefinite number of times.
Anyways that's what I do. I have tens of folders each with its own batch file which will run its specific command line.
This way I can suspend the run at anytime by closing the terminal window. The run will resume from where it was before the interruption next time I run the batch file.
PFGW does an excellent job of keeping track of where it left off and saves it to the ini files in each folder.

Sorry about that. That option was never implemented. I will remove it from pfgwdoc.txt.

OK, thanks for confirmation, I'll just use separate directories.
