yuck is a command line option parser for C that works on a minimal set of dependencies - only a C compiler and the m4 macro processor are required. It supports all the standard use cases: GNU-style long options (--option), condensable short options (-xab for -x -a -b), and optional arguments to long and short options (--foo[=BAR]), multiple occurrence of options (-vvv). Most importantly, it does not depend on libc's getopt() nor getopt_long().
The Lean Mean C++ Option Parser handles program arguments (argc, argv). It supports the short and long option formats of getopt(), getopt_long(), and getopt_long_only(), but has a more convenient interface. It is a freestanding, header-only library with no dependencies, not even libc or STL. It comes with a usage message formatter which supports column alignment and line wrapping, making it ideal for localized messages with different lengths.
CmdOption is a simple annotation-driven command line parser toolkit for Java 5 applications. Everything you need is (at least one) simple configuration object. Each field and method annotated with an CmdOption annotation will be processed. Based on this config, CmdOption is able to parse any command line, guaranteeing the declared specification. The result is directly stored in the given config object. When errors occur, CmdOption gives a meaningful error message. Generated output and validation/error message can be localized.
