Official Mirror:
tclap is a small, flexible library that provides a simple interface for defining and accessing command line arguments. It was initially inspired by the user friendly CLAP library. The difference is that this library is template-only, so the argument class is type independent. Type independence avoids identical-except-for-type objects, such as IntArg, FloatArg, and StringArg. While the library is not strictly compliant with the GNU or POSIX standards, it is close. tclap is written in ANSI C++ and is meant to be compatible with any standards-compliant C++ compiler. The library is implemented entirely in header files making it easy to use and distribute with other software. It implies that this package is almost empty. The actual content, i.e., the header files, are provided by the development package. tclap is now a mature, stable, and feature rich package. It probably will not see much further development aside from bug fixes and compatibility updates.
