lib for parsing cmdline parameters

Popt was heavily influenced by the getopt() and getopt_long() functions, but it allows more powerful argument expansion. It can parse arbitrary argv[] style arrays and automatically set variables based on command line arguments. It also allows command line arguments to be aliased via configuration files and includes utility functions for parsing arbitrary strings into argv[] arrays using shell-like rules.

This package contains the runtime library and locale data.

Package version:1.14-4


This is the popt(3) command line option parsing library. While it is similiar
to getopt(3), it contains a number of enhancements, including:

	1) popt is fully reentrant
	2) popt can parse arbitrary argv[] style arrays while 
	   getopt(3) makes this quite difficult
	3) popt allows users to alias command line arguments
	4) popt provides convience functions for parsing strings
	   into argv[] style


popt (1.14-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Remove locale data from the udeb, and change the package 
    description. The debian-installer developers are sure that they 
    don't need the localization information, mainly error messages.
    (Thanks to Frans Pop for bringing this to my attention.)
