- Subject: getopt_long behavior
- Reply-to: cmorgan at alum dot wpi dot edu
I orginally posted this message some time ago. Having all of
the cygwin tools lacking the ability to accept arguments in
arbirtary order makes it more difficult to use them(I often do
grep "string" *.c and then rerun with -i at the end). Is
there anyway to get around this without recompiling the whole
cygwin suite from source code? Is there still no plan to
switch this behavior back? I can't imagine I'm the only one
that wishes reordering was supported.
