/* This header should not be used directly; include getopt.h instead.
Unlike most bits headers, it does not have a protective #error,

/* Describe the long-named options requested by the application.
The LONG_OPTIONS argument to getopt_long or getopt_long_only is a vector
of 'struct option' terminated by an element containing a name which is
The field 'has_arg' is:
no_argument (or 0) if the option does not take an argument,
required_argument (or 1) if the option requires an argument,
optional_argument (or 2) if the option takes an optional argument.
If the field 'flag' is not NULL, it points to a variable that is set
to the value given in the field 'val' when the option is found, but
left unchanged if the option is not found.
To have a long-named option do something other than set an 'int' to
a compiled-in constant, such as set a value from 'optarg', set the
option's 'flag' field to zero and its 'val' field to a nonzero
value (the equivalent single-letter option character, if there is
one). For long options that have a zero 'flag' field, 'getopt'
returns the contents of the 'val' field. */
