CLI is a command line interface compiler for C++. It allows you to specify the options that your program supports, their types, and default values. This specification can then be translated to C++ classes that implement parsing of the command line arguments and provide a convenient and type-safe interface for accessing the extracted data.
The klish is a framework for implementing Cisco-like command-line interfaces on Unix systems. It is configurable through XML files. "Klish" stands for "Kommand Line Interface SHell". The klish is a fork of clish 0.7.3 developed by Graeme McKerrell. The klish has some new features, but it's as compatible as possible with clish's XML configuration files.
