       gengetopt - skeleton main.c generator


       gengetopt [OPTIONS]...


       GNU gengetopt 2.22.6

       This  program  generates  a C function that uses getopt_long function to parse the command
       line options, validate them and fill a struct.

       -h, --help
              Print help and exit

              Print help, including all details and hidden options, and exit

       -V, --version
              Print version and exit

       Main options:

       -i, --input=filename
              input file (default std input)

       -f, --func-name=name
              name of generated function (default=`cmdline_parser')

       -a, --arg-struct-name=name
              name of generated args info struct (default=`gengetopt_args_info')

       -F, --file-name=name
              name of generated file  (default=`cmdline')

              output directory

              if this option is not specified, the files are generated in the current directory.

              header output directory

              source output directory

       -c, --c-extension=ext
              extension of c file  (default=`c')

       -H, --header-extension=ext
              extension of header file  (default=`h')

       -l, --long-help
              long usage line in help

              The usage line will print all the options, e.g.,

              sample1 -iINT|--int-opt=INT [-h|--help]

              by default, an option is considered optional if not specified otherwise

       -u, --unamed-opts[=STRING]
              accept options without names (e.g., file names) (default=`FILES')

       The parser generated is thought to be used to parse the command line arguments.   However,
       you  can  also  generate  parsers  for  configuration  files,  or strings that contain the
       arguments to parse, by using the following two options.

       -C, --conf-parser
              generate a config file parser

       -S, --string-parser
              generate a string parser (the string contains the command line)

   Additional options:
       -G, --include-getopt
              adds the code for getopt_long in the generated C file

       -n, --no-handle-help
              do not handle --help|-h automatically

              If --no-handle-help is specified, the command line option  --help|-h  will  not  be
              handled  automatically,  so  the  programmer  will  be  able  to  print  some other
              information; then the function for printing the standard help output can  be  used;
              this function is called <parser-name>_print_help.

              Notice that, although the programmer can handle --help|-h manually, the parser will
              return after finding such option: the other command line options, if any,  will  be
              ignored.   In  case  you  want  to  have  full control on --help|-h, you should use

              do not add --help|-h automatically

              With this option you can disable the automatic addition of options --help|-h.   The
              programmer  will then be able to add this option in the input file and handle it as
              he sees fit.  Notice  that  --no-help  will  also  disable  the  automatic  options
              --detailed-help and --full-help.

              The  programmer can still define options with short character h as he wants, but he
              cannot define options help, unless he specifies --no-help (otherwise an error  will
              be printed).

       -N, --no-handle-version
              do not handle --version|-V automatically

              do not add --version|-V automatically

              See above the details about --no-handle-help and --no-help, respectively.

       -e, --no-handle-error
              do not exit on errors

              With  this  option,  if  the generated parser encounters an error (e.g., an unknown
              option) it does not make the  main  program  exit;  instead,  the  parser  function
              returns a value different 0, and the main program can print a help message.

              in  the  output  of  help  will  specify  which options are mandatory, by using the
              optional passed string  (default=`(mandatory)')

              completely hide hidden options

       -g, --gen-version
              put gengetopt version in the generated file (default=on)

              set the package name (override package defined in the .ggo file)

              set the version number (override version defined in the .ggo file)

              show the output of --help instead of generating code

              show the  output  of  --full-help  (i.e.,  including  hidden  options)  instead  of
              generating code

              show  the  output  of  --detailed-help (i.e., including details and hidden options)
              instead of generating code

              show the output of --version instead of generating code

       Please refer to the info manual for further explanations.
