                     sourcefiles [sourcefiles ...]

Automatically inserts a specified license file or copyright message at the top
of one or more source code files

positional arguments:
  sourcefiles           a list of files to update with the license or
                        copyright message

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --licensefile LICENSEFILE
                        a file containing the license or copyright text,
                        defaulting to LICENSE.txt
  --commentblock COMMENTBLOCK
                        a space-separated string indicating the characters to
                        use at the beginning and end of the license message to
                        demark them as a comment block
  --comment COMMENT     a string indicating the characters to use at the
                        beginning of each line of the license message to

                        via the --comment option) followed by a shebang, to
                        indicate an executable script on a POSIX system, then
                        the license text will be inserted AFTER this initial
