Hi,

I'm trying to use getopt to parse the command line arguments.
However, I can't seem to get it to work 'as designed'.

My *optstring is set to "d:s:C:h". If I call the program with the
following arguments:

-d 0 -s -C01

Note, the missing argument for -s. Then, the -C01 is taken as the
argument for -s, whereas the documentation implies that I should get
notification of the missing item.

If I try:

-d 0 -C01 -s

Then I get, correctly, the message "option requires an argument".

How can I get the former example to 'behave'.

Cheers,
Eddie
