std.getopt is a little clunky, but it is what I would prefer most of the time. They are basically just different ways to do the same exact thing. So most of the time it is simply a preference thing.

std.getopt always, also since a few weeks i think that a better version could be done. The expected options are defined in a run-time parameters. This can definitively be some template parameters, which would allow complex static checks and more optimal code. Now: GetOptResult r = getopt(args, "o|option", &o, "p|param", &param); The future: GetOptResult r = getopt!("o|option", o, "p|param", param))(args);

I use std.getopt in my tools. Overall it's pretty good, and the reliability of a package in the standard library has value. That said, I've bumped up against it's limits, and looking at the code, it's not clear to how extend it to more advanced use cases. There may be a case for introducing a next generation package. --Jon
