Readme for config-value-getopt-

[back to package description]


The config-value-getopt package allows GetOpt[1] specified options to be loaded from a configuration file in the config-value[2] format.

  • config-value section names are matched against the "long" option names in GetOpt.
  • Argument values can be provided as strings or numbers
  • An option will be omitted if its value is set to no
  • An option's argument will be omitted if its value is set to yes


address:       "::"
port:          9000
no-access-log: yes
hostname:      no

translates to

--address="::" --port="9000" --no-access-log
