popt: A command-line option parsing library1
Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]
This is the popt command line option parsing library. While it is similiar
to getopt(3), it contains a number of enhancements, including:
1) popt is fully reentrant
2) popt can parse arbitrary argv style arrays while
getopt(2) makes this quite difficult
3) popt allows users to alias command line arguments
4) popt provides convience functions for parsting strings
into argv style arrays
popt is used by rpm, the Red Hat install program, and many other Red Hat
utilities, all of which provide excellent examples of how to use popt.
