question on getopts


Is there a way that one can skip '-' using getopts.

Like for eg. If I run a script as below
Code:
./Script -a a little boy -s "2-1=1"
I want 2-1=1 as an argument for option s i.e value in OPTARG while using getopts. Is it possible??

Thanks,
Asif

Yes. that is very well possible. After all that sort of things is why getopts exists.

See this section of the advanced bash scripting guide.
