SIMple OPTion parser
# 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.
