/* This version of `getopt' appears to the caller like standard Unix `getopt'
   but it behaves differently for the user, since it allows the user
   to intersperse the options with the other arguments.

   As `getopt' works, it permutes the elements of `argv' so that,
   when it is done, all the options precede everything else.  Thus
   all application programs are extended to handle flexible argument order.

   Setting the environment variable _POSIX_OPTION_ORDER disables permutation.
   Then the behavior is completely standard.

   GNU application programs can use a third alternative mode in which
   they can distinguish the relative order of options and other arguments.  */

     by advancing to the next ARGV-element.  */

  /* Describe how to deal with options that follow non-option ARGV-elements.

    UNSPECIFIED means the caller did not specify anything;
    the default is then REQUIRE_ORDER if the environment variable
    _OPTIONS_FIRST is defined, PERMUTE otherwise.

    REQUIRE_ORDER means don't recognize them as options.
    Stop option processing when the first non-option is seen.
    This is what Unix does.

    PERMUTE is the default.  We permute the contents of `argv' as we scan,
    so that eventually all the options are at the end.  This allows options
    to be given in any order, even with programs that were not written to
    expect this.

    RETURN_IN_ORDER is an option available to programs that were written
    to expect options and other ARGV-elements in any order and that care about
    the ordering of the two.  We describe each non-option ARGV-element
    as if it were the argument of an option with character code zero.
    Using `-' as the first character of the list of option characters
    requests this mode of operation.

    The special argument `--' forces an end of option-scanning regardless
    of the value of `ordering'.  In the case of RETURN_IN_ORDER, only
    `--' can cause `getopt' to return EOF with `optind' != ARGC.  */
