This is yet another C++ version of the getopt function, that is, for parsing command line options and environment variables. However, unlike other versions, the design goals of this one are:

  • EASY to use
  • EASY to learn
  • mimc STL's streams
  • minimum code to type
  • smooth integration with STL types
  • Platform independant (ANSI C++)
  • EASY to extend for your own types
