Every option must have exactly one copy of both of these attributes.

Long name for the option. Even if you are not accepting long options and are only accepting flags, it must be provided. AutoOpts generates private, named storage that requires this name.

Except for documentation options, a very brief description of the option. About 40 characters on one line, maximum. It appears on the usage() output next to the option name. If, however, the option is a documentation option, it will appear on one or more lines by itself. It is thus used to visually separate and comment upon groups of options in the usage text.
