Commonly agreed command line options gem?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by LAMBEAU Bernard, Jan 12, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    - Is there a commonly agreed gem for parsing command line options of a
    script (ARGV) ?
    - If no, does anyone know a good one ?

    In all cases (as I'm relatively new to Ruby), what heuristic do you
    use to select the gems you need? There actually a lot of gems
    available and selecting the good one (still maintained, well tested,
    famous ruby developers maybe (?), ...) is pretty hard to me.

    Thanks

  2. OptionParser is in ruby core:

    I am very happy with Ara Howard's "main" gem, though.
    It's very easy to use.

    Jesus.

    My absolute favorite is "trollop". It is mega-mega awesome.
