YAOP -- Yet Another Options Parser

YAOP parses the command-line for both named (arguments) and unnamed (parameters) options and returns them in hash and array. It's intended to be feature-less, simple and lightweight one. It uses declarative approach. See example:

require "yaop"

options = YAOP::get do
    option "--strip"          # simple presency is enough

    options "-l", "--level"   # both of them
    type Integer, 7           # first part, default value 7
    type Integer, 8           # second part, default value 8
    type Integer, 9           # third part, default value 9
end

If command line will be script.rb -l 1 2 --strip "file1.txt" "file2.txt", result will be:

p options.arguments
# will print { "--strip" => true, "-l" => [1, 2, 9], "--level" => [1, 2, 9] }

p options.parameters
# will print ["file1.txt", "file2.txt"]

Be warn, classic syntax like -sl 1 isn't supported.
