plac 0.9.1

The smartest command line arguments parser in the world


If you are lazy, just perform

$ easy_install -U plac

which will install the module on your system (and possibly argparse too, if it is not already installed). Notice that Python 3 requires the easy_install version of the distribute project.

If you prefer to install the full distribution from source, including the documentation, download the tarball, unpack it and run

$ python install

in the main directory, possibly as superuser.



$ python doc/


$ nosetests doc


$ py.test doc

Some tests will fail if sqlalchemy is not installed. Run an easy_install -U sqlalchemy or just ignore them.


The source code and the documentation are hosted on Google code. Here is the full documentation in HTML and PDF form:
