A helper function for setting up an argparse parser.
Provides some common setup actions for argparse. Import and be happy.
Specifically: init_parser() sets up help, version, and docstring options for a program. Help and version are easy to get with argparse normally; printing your docstring is the interesting part. It returns a parser with these basic options configured. After that, you’ll want to your application-specific customizations.
print_and_exit() is an argparse action for printing an arbitrary string - specifically, in this case, a program’s docstring.
>>> __version__ = "1.0" >>> __date__ = "Date of this version's release" >>> #__doc__ is your docstring, which almost every module should have >>> import basic_argparse >>> parser = basic_argparse.init_parser("my awesome program", __version__, >>> __date__, __doc__)
