Lets say that we have a application that has command line options to install and run as a console

  using myoddweb.commandlineparser;

  private void Bar()
    var arguments = new CommandlineParser(args, new CommandlineArgumentRules
        new HelpCommandlineArgumentRule( new []{"help", "h"} ) },
        new OptionalCommandlineArgumentRule( "config",  "config.json" ) },
        new OptionalCommandlineArgumentRule( "install" ) },
        new OptionalCommandlineArgumentRule( "console" ) },
        new RequiredCommandlineArgumentRule( "name" )

We can then check if we are running as a console

  if (arguments.IsSet("console"))

We can also call the config value as we know it exists... (we have a default value)

  var config = _arguments["config"];

We can also get a default value directly

For example, in the example below, we will either get the number that was passed, (example.exe --a 32), or the default value.

The value itself will be an integer, as this is what we expect...

  var theGalaxy = parser.Get<int>("a", 42)

The argument does not have to have a value, for example you could have example.exe --a --b

In that case you would simply default

  var arguments = new CommandlineParser(args, null );

What if you want a different leading pattern ...? Something like example.exe -a -b

Simply pass it as a third argument ...

  var arguments = new CommandlineParser(args, null, "-" );
