Trollop version 1.1 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]

== REQUIREMENTS:

* none

Changes:

== 1.1 / 2007-01-30
* Trollop::options now passes any arguments as block arguments. Since
  instance variables are not properly captured by the block, this
  makes it slightly less noisy to pass them in as local variables.
  (A real-life use for _why's cloaker!)
* Help display now preserves original argument order.
* Trollop::die now also has a single string form in case death is not
  due to a single argument.
* Parser#text now an alias for Parser#banner, and can be called
  multiple times, with the output being placed in the right position
  in the help text.
* Slightly more indicative formatting for parameterized arguments.
