+------------------------------ 1.0.1 Release Notes
+Copyright 2008 Kate Ward. All Rights Reserved.
+Released under the LGPL (GNU Lesser General Public License)
+Author: Kate Ward (
+This document covers any known issues and workarounds for the stated release of
+General info
+This is both a minor bug fix release, and a minor new feature release of
+shFlags. It adds several warning messages, fixes three issues, and now displays
+the default value behind the help string when help is requested. Additionally,
+the coding standards have been modified slightly and officially documented.
+They were taken from the standards used by shUnit2 (the unit testing framework
+used for the unit testing).
+Please see the CHANGES-1.0.txt file for a complete list of changes.
+The unit tests
+shFlags is designed to work on as many environments as possible, but not all
+environments are created equal. As such, not all of the unit tests will succeed
+on every platform. The unit tests are therefore designed to fail, indicating to
+the tester that the supported functionality is not present, but an additional
+test is present to verify that shFlags properly caught the limitation and
+presented the user with an appropriate error message.
+shFlags tries to support both the standard and enhanced versions of **getopt**.
+As each responds differently, and not everything is supported on the standard
+version, some unit tests will be skipped (i.e. ASSERTS will not be thrown) when
+the standard version of **getopt** is detected. The reason being that there is
+no point testing for functionality that is positively known not to exist. A
+tally of skipped tests will be kept for later reference.

+Standard vs Enhanced getopt
+Here is a matrix of the supported features of the various **getopt** variants.
+|Feature |std|enh|
+|short option names | Y | Y |
+|long option names | N | Y |
+|spaces in string options | N | Y |
+Known Issues
+The **getopt** version provided by default with all versions of Mac OS X (up to
+and including 10.5.5) is the standard version. As such, only short flags are
+The **getopt** version provided by default with all versions of Solaris (up to
+and including Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris) is the standard version. As such,
+only short flags are supported.
+The Zsh shell requires the ``shwordsplit`` option to be set, and the special
+``FLAGS_PARENT`` variable must be defined.
