Actually, I think you can setup through the mostly undocumented style_t enumeration for using
a "/" but it is not automatic as I recall. See cmdline.hpp for the style_t definition. It also took a
little looking to figure out how to set style_t. I did it once a couple of years ago and I forget offhand
how I did it but could find it if needed.

  Hicham's point was to generate OS system dependent short long options notations. Like --help or -h on Posix and /help or /h on Windows. AFAIK, program options does not provide this feature.
