The problem was that --no-help and --no-version were not handled if specified inside the .ggo file with 'args'. They were correctly handled if specified at the command line for gengetopt.

However, now they are handled also if specified in args :)

Any ideas? I'm sort of desperate for this to be fixed.

I've specified --no-help through the args directive, yet I can't redefine --help.

Reproducible always, steps:

gengetopt <<EOF
args "--no-help"

option "help" h "test" optional
gengetopt:3: if you want to redefine --help, please use option --no-help
