I could see getsubopt declaration in the unistd.h
but in unix/linux its defined in stdlib.h
i have also noticed that cygwin1.dll does not have that function implemented.

Its well supported in all of the unices, i dont know how we missed on it.

never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
