Bug#764211: ITP: yaggo -- generate command line parser using getopt_long

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@debian.org>

* Package name    : yaggo
  Version         : 1.5.4
  Upstream Author : Guillaume Marçais <gmarcais@umd.edu>
* URL             : https://github.com/gmarcais/yaggo
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: Ruby
  Description     : generate command line parser using getopt_long
 Yaggo is a tool to generate command line parsers for C++. Yaggo stands
 for "Yet Another GenGetOpt" and is inspired by GNU Gengetopt.
 It reads a configuration file describing the switches and argument for
 a C++ program and it generates one header file that parses the command
 line using getopt_long(3).

Remark: Yaggo is needed to upgrade the Debian Med maintained package
jellyfish.  It is written by jellyfish authors and the yaggo examples
and tests also are from this package.  So while from the description it
seems like some generic tool I doubt that it has a wider adoption than
this single package.  I'm not really keen on maintaning it and thus
volunteers are welcome but for the moment yaggo will be maintained by
the Debian Med team at
and is ready for upload and tested with latest version of jellyfish.
