The program_options library allows program developers to obtain program options, that is (name, value) pairs from the user, via conventional methods such as command line and config file.
Program Options, part of the collection of Boost C++ Libraries, allows for definition and acquisition of (name, value) pairs from the user via conventional methods such as command line and config file. It is roughly analogous to getopt_long, but for use with C++.
