Command line parameters parser, calls corresponding user functions and, if necessary, checks type/semantic of values of inputed parameters. Uses Boost C++ libraries.


  • Header-only (does not require building)
  • It's really easy to use
  • Cross-platform (there is only ISO C++ code and Boost C++ libraries)
  • Allows to register parameters with two names (in Unix-style) or single name
  • Calls corresponding functions, with or without argument
  • Allows to register unnamed parameters that can be inputed without names
  • Provides common checks of inputed parameters, like duplication, incorrection, etc.
  • Checks of value's type, like integer or real (defines by type of registered function's argument)
  • Checks of value's semantic, like correct path, etc.
  • Allows to set parameter's necessity.
  • Allows to set parameter's default value.
  • Allows to set another "name-value" separator, instead default '='.
