trollop

1.7.1

DESCRIPTION Trollop is YAFCLAP — yet another fine commandline argument processor for Ruby. Trollop is designed to provide the maximal amount of GNU-style argument processing in the minimum number of lines of code (for you, the programmer). - Simple usage. - Sensible defaults. No tweaking necessary, much tweaking possible. - Support for long options, short options, short option bundling, and automatic type validation and conversion. - Automatic help message generation, wrapped to current screen width. - Lots of unit tests. Synopsis ###### simple ###### require ‘trollop’ opts = Trollop::options do opt :monkey, "Use monkey mode" opt :goat, "Use goat mode", :default => true opt :num_limbs, "Set number of limbs", :default => 4 end p opts ###### medium ###### require ‘trollop’ opts = Trollop::options do version "test 1.2.3 © 2007 William Morgan" banner <<-EOS Test is an awesome program that does something very, very important. Usage: test [options] <filenames>+ where [options] are: EOS opt :ignore, "Ignore incorrect values" opt :file, "Extra data filename to read in, with a very long option description like this one", :type => String opt :volume, "Volume level", :default => 3.0 opt :iters, "Number of iterations", :default => 5 end Trollop::die :volume, "must be non-negative" if opts < 0 Trollop::die :file, "must exist" unless File.exist?(opts) if opts ###### real-life ######
