I fear this mail was not received, since no one answered... so I'll send it again :-)

so I used the file you sent me and modified it so that the initialization takes place when optind is 1 (and not 0).

I also modified the file and renamed the getopt stuffs with the prefix custom_; I then made everything static and include the contents of this file in the generated C files (in case conf or string parsers are generated). The customized version of getopt_long is then used by conf and string parsers and everything seems to work now and also valgrind does not find anything evil.

Very nice, thank you very much.

Is there a reason to use the custom parser only from
cmdline_parser_configfile() but not from cmdline_parser()?

I also tested these features with the test_multiple_parsers test program that uses three parsers (and calls the string parsers many times).

I just tested the new version and this change finally solves the
problem of the grab command :)

Hi again

I tried to fix the problem with another solution (the customized getopt
can still be inserted in the generated c source, by manually using
--include-getopt, which is still a good quick thing, in case your
program is destined for a system which does not provide getopt_long):

1. I switched back to optind = 0 (by few days I'll tell you more about
what the C library maintainers replied to my bug report)
2. I added a check to see whether the program name is in the remaining
arguments and, if so, simply discards it, so that it does not end in the
inputs[] array).

This last problem was raised by Papp Gyozo, who's using another version
of getopt, and I'd really like to have feedback from him, concerning
this new candidate release :-)
I've also added a test that manually inserts the program name in the
argv[] vector, and checks that it then does not appear in the inputs[]
array, (test named no_prog_name), but I'd like to hear from Gyozo too.

here's the new candidate release:

I hope to hear from you soon :-)
