This is an lightweight option parser, which is less than 80 lines short. It has strong validations and a short, clear and easy to use syntax. Feel free to copy all 80 lines (55 lines without validations / empty lines) into your script rather installing the gem.

Isn't it awesome how `optparse` and other option parsers generate help and usage-messages based on your code?! Hell no! You know what's awesome? It's when the option parser *is* generated based on the help and usage-message that you write in a docstring! That's what docopt does!
