getopt question

Ooops, forgot to attach the file in my first e-mail. Now, here it is.


I have some trouble to make getopt.getopt work and the way I want (and 
is described in the documentation).

Attached is very small script to reproduce my problem.

If running:
 > python -a junk1 -b junk2
everything is ok

 > python -c junk1
ok too: I get the 'Invalid option' error message

 > python -a junk1 -c junk2
I'm expecting this to also print the error message, as 'c' is not in the 
argument given in getopt.getopt, but it doesn't.

What am I doing wrong ?

Using python 2.6.4 on WindowXP.
