options is a small and simple library for parsing commandline options. It is not intended to rival popt or the like, so if you need really fancy option parsing `options' is not for you.
Here are some key features of "options":
· long and short options
· options that take no argument are `counters' by default; these start from zero and are incremented each time they're specified
· default values for all types of options
· interpret option values as integer or string, or both
· print table of options and help messages (with default values)
