Tutil is a toolbox for developing command line applications in Rust, influenced by the TTY library for Ruby which intends to reach feature parity with the majority of TTY's features to the extent that is practical in addition to having an extensive and thorough test suite.

Tutil intends to support Linux, BSD, macOS (formerly known as OS X) and Windows. However, in this early stage of development, Tutil in its entirety probably only works on Linux.

The stable documentation can by accessed here.
