I tried to tune compression options beyond built-in presets in foobar, using command line switches - like in EAC. But after several tries I'm not sure weather some options really work. I am confused weather it can be dependant on the order of command line switches?. Does order of them matter? I mean - is it possible, that putting some switch after another one can disable the one that is latter (effectively exclude it from processing options)? For example - does matter if "--sector-align" option in FLAC is the last one (after all "-T" switches for tags) or before them? Does it matter if "-V" (verification) switch is before or after compression parameters (like "-8", "-A")? I tried to read FLAC documentation but I see there only general explanations of all switches, but no info about revelance of their order. Any help will be appreciated.

I find it more apt to close this repost and move the original to General Audio, as you could have requested from staff before.
