GetOpt: UDF to parse the command line

Recommended Posts

GetOpt.au3 v1.3

If you've ever dabbled in C (or Python, Perl etc) then you might have heard of getopt() (Wiki entry). Well, I wrote this UDF to get that functionality into AutoIt. Some searching around here on the forum did turn up some other UDFs in this direction, but I decided to write my own port anyway and parallel the implementation in the C library. It's still missing a few things but on a whole it does the job really well. It's now pretty much complete.

And I want to share it with you all. So here it is.

If you want to handle the command line options passed to your script or program like a master, then this is the UDF for you!

Main features:

  • Parses DOS style options as well as GNU style options alike.
  • Handles both short and long options.
  • Define options that must have arguments when used.
  • Define and handle suboptions (-s=foo,bar=quux,baz).
  • Supports + and /- option modifiers.
  • Casts string arguments to AutoIt variants, e.g. -a=yes becomes True.
  • Easy access to any passed operand that's not an option.

Some examples of invoking scripts:

Script.au3 -a -b=10 --long-option file.txt
Script.au3 /A /B:10 /Long-Option file.txt

As you see you can use both styles on the command line (as a matter of fact, at this moment you could even mix them but that wouldn't be good practice). In your script you just set the options you want to detect with _GetOpt_Set() and then iterate through each option with _GetOpt(). The 'file.txt' is available through _GetOpt_Oper(). See GetOpt-Example.au3 below for a step-by-step walkthrough of using GetOpt.au3.

The UDF:

GetOpt.au3 (+43)

GetOpt-Example.au3: A demo of GetOpt.au3

#include <GetOpt.au3>
#include <Array.au3> ; For demo purposes only.

If 0 = $CmdLine[0] Then
    ; Create our own example command line.
    Run(FileGetShortName(@AutoItExe) & ' ' & FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath) & ' -a=no -b=42 -c=0.5 /Windows:' & @OSVersion & ' -z --required -s=foo,bar=quux,baz +p /-M -- -w=ignored Hello World!')

Version 1.3:
+ Added support for -- (marks end of options).
+ Added support for + option modifiers e.g. +x.
+ Added support for /- option modifiers e.g. /-X.
+ Added _GetOpt_Sub to iterate through comma-separated suboptions like -s=a=foo,b=bar.
* Changed $GETOPT_REQUIRED_ARGUMENT from keyword Default to Chr(127), keyword can now be used as an option argument.
* Standardized comments and function headers.
* Tidy-ed up source code.
Version 1.2:
+ Support for required arguments with options, e.g. _GetOpt('ab:c') where -b=foo is valid and -b will return an error.
+ Added support for /C:foo (colon) when using DOS style.
+ Added optional auto-casting of arguments from Strings to AutoIt variants, e.g. -a=yes on the CLI would set the $GetOpt_Arg to True and not 'yes'. See __GetOpt_Cast.
* Private __GetOpt_DOSToGNU to simplify code.
Version 1.1:
* Initial public release.

If you encounter any bugs or have any suggestions, requests or improvements, then please let me know.

Happy coding!

This set of functions is for dealing with command line parameters sent to your script when you run the exe.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Yep, if you run 'program.exe -a -b -c' you can access each option inside the loop and deal with them appropiately.

Thank you for this awesome tool. I really love it. I did find an issue. When using an option, I am not able to send a zero as an option for a required option. For instance:

-t=0 or /t:0

This gives me an error that results from going into the Case ':'

I do have version 1.3, I upgraded today from 1.2.

Thanks again for the tool.

The same happens when passing "True/Yes/yes/y" as the required option.

Thank you for your excellent UDF.  I used years ago with great success with an earlier version of Autoit--I don't recall which one.  Recently, using Autoit 3.3.14.2, I get a syntax error on these statements:

Global Const Enum $GETOPT_MOD_NONE = 0, $GETOPT_MOD_PLUS, $GETOPT_MOD_MINUS ; Int: Option modifiers.

 Global Const Enum $E_GETOPT_BAD_FUNCTION_ARGUMENT = 1, _
        $E_GETOPT_INVALID_OPTIONS, $E_GETOPT_NO_OPTIONS_SET, _
        $E_GETOPT_NO_COMMAND_LINE, $E_GETOPT_NO_OPTIONS, $E_GETOPT_NO_OPERANDS, _
        $E_GETOPT_UNKNOWN_OPTION, $E_GETOPT_MISSING_ARGUMENT, _
        $E_GETOPT_SUBOPTION_MISMATCH, $E_GETOPT_NO_SUBOPTIONS, $E_GETOPT_UNKNOWN_SUBOPTION

I found that if I remove the Const qualifier, the module compiles successfully.  Perhaps some change to Autoit altered the previously  valid syntax. After all, Enum implies Const.

      GuiFlatButton is a UDF to easily create regular buttons with different colors for background, foreground, border, hover, focus, etc..
      This started as an effort to change the background color of a button and eventually grew into a full UDF.
      If you've looked around forums for changing button background colors, you have probably noticed that each proposed workaround has its own set of issues/side-effects. The answers usually circle back to 'use ownerdrawn buttons' and 'not worth it'. Well, now it is possible for anyone to easily create ownerdrawn buttons - totally worth it!
      Some issues with other workarounds such as drawing with GDI+ or using a colored label as a 'button':
      Not 'real' buttons so you lose built-in functionality that windows gives to buttons Messy / inefficient code in the main while loop to check for mouse position Slow to respond to click, paint, etc... Having to deal with GUIRegisterMsg messages Not straight-forward to implement GuiFlatButton is not a workaround; it is a technique to respond to Windows' built-in owner-drawn button events.
      With minimal effort, we can now create true simple colored buttons.
      The idea is to create an owner-drawn button using GUICtrlCreateButton then subclass the GUI and controls to handle the button-specific events to paint it however we want.
      This UDF magically does all of this for us! No need to worry about event handling or main while loop logic.
       
      How to use
      It couldn't be any easier! Simply create a new button using the familiar syntax. This creates an ownerdrawn button with default colors.
      $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 78, 20, 120, 40) If you want to change the background and text colors:
      GuiFlatButton_SetBkColor(-1, 0x5555FF) GuiFlatButton_SetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF) Advanced Usage
      Set background/text/border all at once

      This UDF was created to facilitate the saving and reading of email configuration.
      Thanks to @water, @jchd, @Jos for helping in translation of _EmailConfig_GUI_Preset_**()
      Hope to have _EmailConfig_GUI_Preset_ES() version soon.

      If you want to create your national version of _EmailConfig_GUI_Preset_**() please do not hesitate ... contribute.
      _EmailConfig_GUI_Preset_EN() is translated by me and Google Translator (from my national Polish language), so if you have any fix for this please do not hesitate ... contribute.
