Linux command line (cli) parsing of MOUNTED_VALUE and equals = sign

description

The following error occurs:
Unexpected characters following option 'dismount'.
When running any commands that take a MOUNTED_VOLUME mount point path option like:
veracrypt --dismount=/media/drive_veracrypt/
The documentation shows that the = should be used, but if used it causes the error.


Leaving the = out allows it to work. Other options such as
--volume-properties[=MOUNTED_VOLUME]
are also affected.


The documentation should either be updated to not show the = or the code updated to allow parsing it.

The following does work:
veracrypt --dismount /media/drive_veracrypt/
