Getopt

May 26, 2018

Replacement for getopt(1) that supports GNU-style long options

Rewrite of getopt1 with the following features

  • It can do anything that the GNU getopt3 routines can do.
  • It can cope with spaces and shell metacharacters within arguments.
  • It can parse long parameters.
  • It can shuffle parameters, so you can mix options and other parameters on the command-line.
  • It can be easily identified as an enhanced getopt1 from within shell scripts.
  • It can report parse errors as coming from the shell script.
  • It compiles cleanly with both libc-5 and glibc-2.
