getopt

(PHP 4 >= 4.3.0)

getopt -- Gets options from the command line argument list

Description

string getopt ( string options)

Returns an associative array of option / argument pairs based on the options format specified in options, or FALSE on an error.

<?php
// parse the command line ($GLOBALS['argv'])
$options = getopt("f:hp:");
 ?>

The options parameter may contain the following elements: individual characters, and characters followed by a colon to indicate an option argument is to follow. For example, an option string x recognizes an option -x, and an option string x: recognizes an option and argument -x argument. It does not matter if an argument has leading white space.

This function will return an array of option / argument pairs. If an option does not have an argument, the value will be set to FALSE.

Note: This function is not implemented on Windows platforms.
