cmdparse - an advanced command line parser using optparse which has support for commands
Copyright (C) 2004-2020 Thomas Leitner
Some programs use a "command style" command line. Examples for such programs are the "gem" program from Rubygems and the "svn" program from Subversion. The standard Ruby distribution has no library to create programs that use such a command line interface.
This library, cmdparse, can be used to create such a command line interface. Internally it uses optparse to parse options and it provides a nice API for specifying commands.
See https://cmdparse.gettalong.org for detailed information, an extensive tutorial and the API reference!
You can build the documentation by invoking
$ rake doc
This builds the whole documentation and needs webgen >=1.4.0 (https://webgen.gettalong.org) for building.
There is an example of how to use cmdparse in the
example/net.rb file. A detailed walkthrough of
what each part does can be found on https://cmdparse.gettalong.org/tutorial.html.

The preferred way of installing cmdparse is via RubyGems:
$ gem install cmdparse
If you don't want to use RubyGems, use these commands:
$ ruby setup.rb config $ ruby setup.rb setup $ ruby setup.rb install
