  • argbash

    Bash argument parsing code generator

    Yeah, now that I look at it a bit closer, it is quirky. Not unmanageable, but I think I prefer something like Argparse which generates the parsing code for you using a simpler language.

  • sh_libpath

    Making shell scripts more robust with libraries

    There are a number of library files that offer a range of arg handling possibilities in different ways, I collated several of them here, but I don't have a favourite.

  • getoptions

    An elegant option/argument parser for shell scripts (full support for bash and all POSIX shells)

    I like to use https://github.com/ko1nksm/getoptions

  • shflags

    shFlags is a port of the Google gflags library for Unix shell.

    Wow thanks! I just found another option, https://github.com/kward/shflags, but yours looks even better.
