Detailed Description

Class that helps parse command line input arguments from (argc,argv[]) and set options.

This class will process command-line arguments in the form of (argc,argv[]) and set user-defined options. This class can also work in a number of modes. This processor can require that all options be recognized or not.

This class object will also setup the behavior of Teuchos::VerboseObjectBase::getDefaultOStream() if this->addOutputSetupOptions()==true

CommandLineProcessor::EParseCommandLineReturn Teuchos::CommandLineProcessor::parse ( int  argc,
char *  argv[],
std::ostream *  errout = &std::cerr 
) const

Parse a command line.

Parameters:
argc [in] number of entries in argv[]
argv [in/out] array (length argc) of command line arguments. argv[0] should be the name of the program on the shell as usual.
errout [out] If !=NULL then error and help messages are sent here. The default is set to &std::cerr.

Postconditions:

  • If an unrecognized option is found
    • If this->recogniseAllOptions()==true
      • An error message will be printed to *errout and parsing will stop as follows:
      • If this->throwExceptions()==true
      • else
        • This method will return PARSE_UNRECOGNIZED_OPTION
      • endif
    • else
      • A warning message will be printed to *errout and parsing will continue
    • endif
  • else if the option --help is found
    • If this->throwExceptions()==true
    • else
      • This method will return PARSE_HELP_PRINTED
    • endif
  • else
    • This method will return PARSE_SUCCESSFUL
  • endif

Note that if the option --pause-for-debugging is present, then std::string Type 0 and press enter to continue : will be printed to standard error (std::cerr) and execution will be suspended until the user enters any non-null character(s). This option is designed to make it easier to attach a debugger, especially in a parallel MPI program. If HAVE_MPI is defined, then output/input is only performed with the process with rank 0 and then MPI calls insure that all processors wait (using MPI_Barrier(MPI_COMM_WORLD)) until the user has entered something. This allows the user to attach a debugger to one or more parallel MPI processes and set breakpoints before execution resumes. Note that the stream *errout is not used for this output/input but instead std::cerr is directly used.

If Teuchos::VerboseObjectBase::getDefaultOStream().get()!=NULL and this->addOutputSetupOptions(), then any of the default setup options for Teuchos::VerboseObjectBase::getDefaultOStream() that are set on the commandline will be set on Teuchos::VerboseObjectBase::getDefaultOStream().

void Teuchos::CommandLineProcessor::printHelpMessage ( const char  program_name[],
std::ostream &  out 
) const

Print the help message.

Parameters:
out [in/out] The stream the documentation will be printed to.

This will print a formatted set of documentation that shows what options are set, what their default values are and any user-supplied documentation about each option.
