Trollop version 1.0 has been released!

  http://trollop.rubyforge.org

Trollop is YAFCLAP --- yet another fine commandline argument
processing library for Ruby. Trollop is designed to provide the
maximal amount of GNU-style argument processing in the minimum number
of lines of code (for you, the programmer).

Trollop provides a nice automatically-generated help page, robust
option parsing, and sensible defaults for everything you don't
specify.

Synopsis:

  ###### simple ######

  opts = Trollop::options do
    opt :monkey, "Use monkey mode."
    opt :goat, "Use goat model", :default => true
    opt :num_limbs, "Set number of limbs", :default => 4
  end

  p opts

  ###### complex ######

  opts = Trollop::options do
    version "test 1.2.3 (c) 2007 William Morgan"
    banner <<-EOS
  Test is an awesome program that does something very, very important.

  Usage:
         test [options] <filenames>+
  where [options] are:
  EOS

    opt :ignore, "Ignore incorrect values"
    opt :file, "Extra data filename to read in, with a very long option description like this one", :type => String
    opt :volume, "Volume level", :default => 3.0
    opt :iters, "Number of iterations", :default => 5
  end
  Trollop::die :volume, "must be non-negative" if opts[:volume] < 0
  Trollop::die :file, "must exist" unless File.exists?(opts[:file]) if opts[:file]
