optparse is an option parsing package, primarily used by safe:: code. While this code has shipped for a number of years with Tcl, it is deprecated in favor of cmdline, and is expected to go away in a future release. It is NOT supported and you should not design your applications depending on this package to be distributed with Tcl. On the other hand, you can copy the .tcl file directly into your application.
