The multiarg package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

multiarg is a parser combinator library to build command line parsers. With it you can easily create parsers with options that take more than one option argument--for example, I created multiarg due to the apparent lack of such ability amongst other parsers. Its basic design is loosely inspired by Parsec.

Provides Parser, a monad you use to build parsers. This monad exposes multiarg's full functionality. The library also has a simple, pre-built parser built with the underlying combinators, which works for many situtations and shields you from the underlying complexity if you don't need it.

See the documentation in the System.Console.MultiArg module for details.
