Optparse-applicative is a haskell library for parsing options on the command
line, providing a powerful applicative interface for composing these options.
optparse-applicative takes care of reading and validating the arguments passed
to the command line, handling and reporting errors, generating a usage line, a
comprehensive help screen, and enabling context-sensitive bash completions.
See the included README for detailed instructions and examples, which is also
available on github <>.

- Update optparse-applicative to version
[#]# Version (03 Oct 2018)
- Updated dependency bounds.
- Fix tab completion with Commands being unreachable.
- Clean ups and Documentation.
2018-07-18 -
- Cosmetic: replace tabs with blanks, strip trailing white space,
and update copyright headers with spec-cleaner.

- Update optparse-applicative to version
- Export `HasName`, `HasCompleter`, `HasValue`, and
`HasMetavar` type classes.
- Upgrade `str` and related builders to be polymorphic over
`IsString`. This allows `Text` and `Bytestring` to be used
naturally with `strOption` and `strArgument` and friends.
* Note:* This change may require additional type signatures
in cases where the reader was necessary for type
- Export public API explicitly from `Options.Applicative`
instead of re-exporting other modules.
* Note:* Minor changes to exports were made in conjunction
to this change. `ParserHelp` no longer requires an
an extra import, and some internally used functions
from `Options.Applicative.Common` are no longer
exported from the main module.
- Add Zsh and Fish completions with rich descriptions for
options and commands.
Use "--zsh-completion-script" and "fish-completion-script"
to generate scripts for these shells.
- Fix bash completions with quoted sections, tilde expansions
and completions after "--".
- Add suggestions to error message when a user mistypes a
command or option.
- Add `style` builder, for styling option descriptions.
- Improve error message for options when a required argument
is not supplied.
- Fix #242 regarding flags with long options, where a flag given
a long option could be interpreted incorrectly.
- Fix `noIntersperse` to be more like its namesakes in other
libraries. When on, options will be accepted until an argument
is passed, after which all options will be treated as positional
- Add `forwardOptions` builder, which will allow unknown options
and flags to be passed to an argument builder.
This is useful to mixed parsing environments, or wrappers to
other commands.
- Add `Semigroup` instances for `Completer` and `Chunk`.
- Forwards compatibility with `MonadFail` proposal.

- update to
* Improve subparser contexts to improve usage error texts
* Fixed bugs
2015-12-30 -
- update to
* Add "missing" error condition descriptions when required flags and arguments
are not provided.
* Allow multiple short flags to be concatenated together behind a single
hyphen, e.g. "-xcf".
* Updated dependency bounds on process and ansi-wl-pprint.
* Add Show and Eq instances to some types for easier debugging.
* Add defaultPrefs, a default preferences value
