    Command Line Argument Parsing

    Hi. I'm looking for a library to aid in parsing command line arguments on Windows. Does anybody know of such a thing? The GNU getopt library would be an example but that does not run on Windows. I'm using Visual C++ 6.0 (SP6). Thanks in advance.

    As far as I see, that will just retrieve the command line string. What I want is something like getopt() which will help me parse this string.

    search google for getopt.c getopt.h and tailor.h, it compiles fine under my development environment, it runs without error:
    Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003
