getopt: C-like getopt behavior

Package designed to be used with Rscript to write “#!” shebang scripts that accept short and long flags/options. Many users will prefer using instead the packages optparse or argparse which add extra features like automatically generated help option and usage, support for default values, positional argument support, etc.
