Tool for generating a C function which parses command line arguments
This program generate a C function that uses getopt_long function to parse the command line options, validate them and fill a struct.
Thus your program can now handle options such as
myprog --input foo.c -o foo.o --no-tabs -i 100 *.class
And both long options those that start with – and short options start with - and consist of only one character can be handled. For standards about short and long options you may want to take a look at the GNU Coding Standards.
