can anybody tell me how to upgrade just this one file:
devel/popt? i tried various forms up portupgrade. zip.
i'm interested in anything that is an improvment on old getopt().
that said, i remember fu==ooling around w ith doing things the
=long= way. having an "#include <stdopt.h>" with those few dozen
lines of code hidden away would be a ++win.
PS: we do have ots; it's in textproc. check it out, guys. seems
to work out/box.
pps:: it is time for a C2012 or the like...
