The Gastown Command Line Parser quickly, easily, and reliably parses the command line passed to your application.

Gastown is similar in some respects to the "getopt" library which is so often used in Linux applications, but it offers enhanced functionality.

The functionality includes:

  • automatic handling of single- or double-quoted strings.
  • parameters can be of different types including strings, booleans, integers and floats.
  • integer and float parameters can be limited to a certain range.
  • default values for parameters.
  • parameters can be marked as required.
  • automatic generation of help messages describing the parameters.
  • informative messages if the parameters are incorrectly specified.
  • support for short and long parameter names.
