SIMple OPTion parser

Project description

# simopt, the SIMple OPTion parser

Simopt is a lightweight module for parsing command line options in python programs. The options can be written in a separate file or at the top of a script. They are (currently) written in a list of tuples, with each entry corresponding to an option consisting of

  • int: the option level (allowing differentiating help levels)

  • str: the option name (command line)

  • str: the option target (option class attribute)

  • class: the option unit type (parser)

  • int: the number of parameters for the option

  • object: the default value (None if no default)

  • int: flags (MULTI, MANDATORY, …)

  • str: description (help text)

String items in the option list are part of the help and allow sectioning options.
