Re: getoptlong, getopt, parseopt, which one to use for comma


#1

There seems to be several options out there. Which one
should be used
when creating command line tools?

it keeps things exciting to mix them up in unpredictable ways

  • preferably in obfusicated code.

:wink:

seriously - use getoptlong for simple stuff and optparse if
your needs are more elaborate.

Use getopt for simple stuff or commandline if your needs are more
elaborate.

Iā€™m not sure what you mean. I know what getopt is but what do you mean
by use commandline?


#3

commandline is in RubyForge. See
http://rubyforge.org/projects/optionparser/.
