Bug#375903: ITP: libgetopt++ -- C++ wrapper for getopt to allow arbitrary location of options within sources

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Adeodato Simó" <dato@net.com.org.es>

* Package name    : libgetopt++
  Version         : 0.0.2-p22
  Upstream Author : Robert Collins <robertc@robertcollins.net>
* URL             : http://people.ubuntu.com/~robertc/rbtcollins%40hotmail.com--barch/libgetoptplusplus/
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : C++ library for command line parsing

 libgetopt++ is a C++ library to parse options that a program gets specified
 from the command line. It has the following features:
  * Minimal footprint in main.cc, and no header or source changes outside the
    user of an option when the option is altered or a new option added.
  * Multiple option sets can co-exist safely. The default option set is a
    singleton, but additional static sets can be created and used.
  * Easy to use: adding a new option is simply a case of adding a static
    variable for the option, in the scope that the option needs to be visible.
  * There are multiple concrete Option classes provided: Bool, String,
  * Extensible: simply create a new subclass of Option to implement a new
    Option type, and use it in your program.

At the moment, only config-manager needs libgetopt++, that I know of.
