Hi Lorenzo,

I've been working on ChilliSpot ( with David Bird. He made this extention to gengetopt which makes it possible to include an external file to the configuration file. With chillispot the configuration file (/etc/chilli.conf) will be something like:

interval 3600
radiusauthport 1812
dhcpif eth0
include /etc/chilli.conf_local

The idea is that the configuration file can be split up into several different files. Some of these are made during installation, while some of them are changes by a web interface ot the like. The patch he made for chillispot can be found here:

Do you think this kind of configuration would be suitable for gengetopt?


I've applied your patch, and you can download a candidate release here:

please let me know whether this works fine for you (I've added some tests in the test suite)

I hope to hear from you soon

thanks again for your patch
