Example text

To specify the available long options, you construct an array of struct option elements. Each element corresponds to one long option and has four fields. You could construct the array like this: const struct option long_options[] = { { “help”, 0, NULL, ‘h’ }, { “output”, 1, NULL, ‘o’ }, { “verbose”, 0, NULL, ‘v’ }, { NULL, 0, NULL, 0 } }; You invoke the getopt_long function, passing it the argc and argv arguments to main, the character string describing short options, and the array of struct option elements describing the long options.

With most shells, it’s possible to obtain the exit code of the most recently executed program using the special $? variable. Here’s an example in which the ls command is invoked twice and its exit code is printed after each invocation. In the first case, ls executes correctly and returns the exit code zero. In the second case, ls encounters an error (because the filename specified on the command line does not exist) and thus returns a nonzero exit code. % ls / bin coda etc lib misc nfs proc boot dev home lost+found mnt opt root % echo $?

You turn off the check by defining the macro NDEBUG. cpp, but that would require changing the source itself. You can do this by using the -O2 command-line option. 4, “Debugging with GDB”). Also, in certain instances, compiling with optimization can uncover bugs in your program that did not manifest themselves previously. You should always use g++ to link a program that contains C++ code, even if it also contains C code. If your program contains only C code, you should use gcc instead. o The -o option gives the name of the file to generate as output from the link step.
