Feature #9960

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) over 6 years ago

Please consider adding GNU --long option equivalents. Notes: 

 * *) Prefer uppercase "V" for version, as small "v" is customarily user 
    for --verbose. 
 * *) Change word "switches" into more commonly used "options" word 
    in USAGE line.
