[ANN] cooloptions 1.1.0 Released

  1. cooloptions version 1.1.0 has been released!


    As a huge fan of optparse due to its flexibility, self-documenting
    nature, and ease of use, I nevertheless found myself doing almost the
    exact same thing with it over and over again, and decided to write a
    thin wrapper around it to handle the common cases. Thus CoolOptions
    was born. CoolOptions is a simple wrapper around optparse that
    provides less configuration and more convenience for doing
    command-line option handling.


    == 1.1.0 / 2007-01-10

    * Incremented the version number to more rationally reflect the addition of
    CoolOptions#desc in 1.0.5.
    * Fixed handling of overlapping automatic short options.

  2. Hi Nathaniel,

    I just tried to install cooloptions (sound like I should have it :) and
    get the following output:

    D:\programme\ruby\ruby182\lib\ruby\gems\1.8>gem inst hoe --remote
    Install required dependency zentest? [Yn]
    Install required dependency hoe? [Yn]
    Install required dependency zentest? [Yn]
    Install required dependency hoe? [Yn]

    Could it be that there is circular dependency that gem cannot handle? Is
    there some option (of gem) to load all dependent gems as well and not
    asking for it?

    See the "Hoe poisoned in Rubyforge" thread for a workaround.

  6. My pleasure! Once you get a chance to use it, I'd love to hear any
    feedback you have.

  7. I'm thinking of including it as an optional feature[0] in our code
    generation tool for Ruport.
    Once i test it out a bit, hopefully I can hack something together.

    Thanks again!
