argtable-2.0 released (again)

Announcing the re-release of version 2.0 of argtable.
The previous release (6-Oct-03) were not downloading from the sourceforge site properly. This release fixes the problem, so if you had problems downloading before please try again.

Argtable is an ANSI C library for parsing GNU style command line arguments. It enables the programmer to define the entire command line syntax of a program in a statically defined array of structs. The command line is then parsed against these specifications. Upon a successful parse, the argument values are deposited directly into program variables where they may be accessed by the main program. The library can automatically generate on-line help regarding the command line syntax too.... read more
