for each `-' in the name of the long option.  For example, the
following invocation under VMS:

     bison /debug/name_prefix=bar foo.y

is equivalent to the following command under POSIX.

     bison --debug --name-prefix=bar foo.y

   The VMS file system does not permit filenames such as `foo.tab.c'.
In the above example, the output file would instead be named
