(synopsis "Command line option parsing library")
"This is the popt(3) command line option parsing library. While it is
similar to getopt(3), it contains a number of enhancements, including:
- popt is fully reentrant;
- popt can parse arbitrary argv[] style arrays while getopt(3) makes this
quite difficult;
- popt allows users to alias command line arguments;
- popt provides convience functions for parsing strings into argv[] style
