OptionParser

Introduction

OptionParser is a class for command-line option analysis. It is much more advanced, yet also easier to use, than GetoptLong, and is a more Ruby-oriented solution.

Features

  1. The argument specification and the code to handle it are written in the same place.

  2. It can output an option summary; you don't need to maintain this string separately.

  3. Optional and mandatory arguments are specified very gracefully.

  4. Arguments can be automatically converted to a specified class.

  5. Arguments can be restricted to a certain set.

All of these features are demonstrated in the examples below. See #make_switch for full documentation.

Minimal example

require 'optparse'

options = {}
OptionParser.new do |opts|
  opts.banner = "Usage: example.rb [options]"

  opts.on("-v", "--[no-]verbose", "Run verbosely") do |v|
    options[:verbose] = v
  end
end.parse!

p options
p ARGV

Generating Help

OptionParser can be used to automatically generate help for the commands you write:

require 'optparse'

Options = Struct.new(:name)

class Parser
  def self.parse(options)
    args = Options.new("world")

    opt_parser = OptionParser.new do |opts|
      opts.banner = "Usage: example.rb [options]"

      opts.on("-nNAME", "--name=NAME", "Name to say hello to") do |n|
        args.name = n
      end

      opts.on("-h", "--help", "Prints this help") do
        puts opts
        exit
      end
    end

    opt_parser.parse!(options)
    return args
  end
end
options = Parser.parse %w[--help]

#=>
   # Usage: example.rb [options]
   #     -n, --name=NAME                  Name to say hello to
   #     -h, --help                       Prints this help#

Complete example

The following example is a complete Ruby program. You can run it and see the effect of specifying various options. This is probably the best way to learn the features of optparse.

require 'optparse/time'
require 'ostruct'
require 'pp'

class OptparseExample

  CODES = %w[iso-2022-jp shift_jis euc-jp utf8 binary]

  #
  # Return a structure describing the options.
  #
  def self.parse(args)
    # The options specified on the command line will be collected in *options*.
    # We set default values here.
    options = OpenStruct.new
    options.library = []
    options.inplace = false
    options.encoding = "utf8"
    options.transfer_type = :auto
    options.verbose = false

    opt_parser = OptionParser.new do |opts|
      opts.banner = "Usage: example.rb [options]"

      opts.separator ""
      opts.separator "Specific options:"

      # Mandatory argument.
      opts.on("-r", "--require LIBRARY",
              "Require the LIBRARY before executing your script") do |lib|
        options.library << lib
      end

      # Optional argument; multi-line description.
      opts.on("-i", "--inplace [EXTENSION]",
              "Edit ARGV files in place",
              "  (make backup if EXTENSION supplied)") do |ext|
        options.inplace = true
        options.extension = ext || ''
        options.extension.sub!(/\A\.?(?=.)/, ".")  # Ensure extension begins with dot.
      end

      # Cast 'delay' argument to a Float.
      opts.on("--delay N", Float, "Delay N seconds before executing") do |n|
        options.delay = n
      end

      # Cast 'time' argument to a Time object.
      opts.on("-t", "--time [TIME]", Time, "Begin execution at given time") do |time|
        options.time = time
      end

      # Cast to octal integer.
      opts.on("-F", "--irs [OCTAL]", OptionParser::OctalInteger,
              "Specify record separator (default \\0)") do |rs|
        options.record_separator = rs
      end

      # List of arguments.
      opts.on("--list x,y,z", Array, "Example 'list' of arguments") do |list|
        options.list = list
      end

      # Keyword completion.  We are specifying a specific set of arguments (CODES
      # and CODE_ALIASES - notice the latter is a Hash), and the user may provide
      # the shortest unambiguous text.
      code_list = (CODE_ALIASES.keys + CODES).join(',')
      opts.on("--code CODE", CODES, CODE_ALIASES, "Select encoding",
              "  (#{code_list})") do |encoding|
        options.encoding = encoding
      end

      # Optional argument with keyword completion.
      opts.on("--type [TYPE]", [:text, :binary, :auto],
              "Select transfer type (text, binary, auto)") do |t|
        options.transfer_type = t
      end

      # Boolean switch.
      opts.on("-v", "--[no-]verbose", "Run verbosely") do |v|
        options.verbose = v
      end

      opts.separator ""
      opts.separator "Common options:"

      # No argument, shows at tail.  This will print an options summary.
      # Try it and see!
      opts.on_tail("-h", "--help", "Show this message") do
        puts opts
        exit
      end

      # Another typical switch to print the version.
      opts.on_tail("--version", "Show version") do
        puts ::Version.join('.')
        exit
      end
    end

    opt_parser.parse!(args)
    options
  end  # parse()

end  # class OptparseExample

options = OptparseExample.parse(ARGV)
pp options
pp ARGV

Shell Completion

For modern shells (e.g. bash, zsh, etc.), you can use shell completion for command line options.

#make_switch(opts, block = nil) ⇒ Object

Creates an OptionParser::Switch from the parameters. The parsed argument value is passed to the given block, where it can be processed.

See at the beginning of OptionParser for some full examples.

opts can include the following elements:

Argument style:

One of the following:

:NONE, :REQUIRED, :OPTIONAL
Argument pattern:

Acceptable option argument format, must be pre-defined with OptionParser.accept or OptionParser#accept, or Regexp. This can appear once or assigned as String if not present, otherwise causes an ArgumentError. Examples:

Float, Time, Array
Possible argument values:

Hash or Array.

[:text, :binary, :auto]
%w[iso-2022-jp shift_jis euc-jp utf8 binary]
{ "jis" => "iso-2022-jp", "sjis" => "shift_jis" }
Long style switch:

Specifies a long style switch which takes a mandatory, optional or no argument. It's a string of the following form:

"--switch=MANDATORY" or "--switch MANDATORY"
"--switch[=OPTIONAL]"
"--switch"
Short style switch:

Specifies short style switch which takes a mandatory, optional or no argument. It's a string of the following form:

"-xMANDATORY"
"-x[OPTIONAL]"
"-x"

There is also a special form which matches character range (not full set of regular expression):

"-[a-z]MANDATORY"
"-[a-z][OPTIONAL]"
"-[a-z]"
Argument style and description:

Instead of specifying mandatory or optional arguments directly in the switch parameter, this separate parameter can be used.

"=MANDATORY"
"=[OPTIONAL]"
Description:

Description string for the option.

"Run verbosely"
Handler:

Handler for the parsed argument value. Either give a block or pass a Proc or Method as an argument.
