When provided with a modulepath, via command line or config file, puppet script can load functions, types, tasks and plans from modules.
Note that any setting that´s valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, ´environment´ is a valid setting, so you can specify ´−−environment mytest´ as an argument.

Where to send log messages. Choose between ´syslog´ (the POSIX syslog service), ´eventlog´ (the Windows Event Log), ´console´, or the path to a log file. Defaults to ´console´. Multiple destinations can be set using a comma separated list (eg: /path/file1,console,/path/file2)"
A path ending with ´.json´ will receive structured output in JSON format. The log file will not have an ending ´]´ automatically written to it due to the appending nature of logging. It must be appended manually to make the content valid JSON.
A path ending with ´.jsonl´ will receive structured output in JSON Lines format.
Use ´noop´ mode where Puppet runs in a no−op or dry−run mode. This is useful for seeing what changes Puppet will make without actually executing the changes. Applies to tasks only.
