GNU Gengetopt 2.5 has been released.  It is available from and mirrors of that site (see list of
mirror sites at

GNU Gengetopt generates a C function that uses getopt_long function 
to parse the command line options, validate them and fill a

Changes in this version:

* much more recent versions of getopt.h, getopt.c, getopt1.c are
 (the previous ones were very very old!), that do not rely on alloca
* when a flag option is given the corresponding  _given variable is set
 (bug fixed by Guillaume Chazarain  <address@hidden>).
* Fixed documentation of sample1, as suggested by Lutz Maibaum
* Avoid a warning due to generated gengetopt_strdup (thanks to Brian
  Minard <address@hidden>)
* the generated print_help function use a different printf for every
  option, thus avoiding a single printf with a possible very huge string
  (thanks to Herbert Thoma <address@hidden>)
