Quick Start

Example of configuring the port option using the Fluent API.

static void Main(string[] args)
   // create the parser
   var parser = new CommandLineParser<ServerOptions>();
   // configure the options using the Fluent API
   parser.Configure(options => options.Port)
      .Name("p", "port")
      .Description("The port of the server")

   // parse
   var parserResult = parser.Parse(args);

   // check for parsing errors
   if (parserResult.HasErrors)

      return -1;

   var serverOptions = parserResult.Result;

   Console.WriteLine($"Parsed port is {serverOptions.Port}");

private class ServerOptions
   // options
   public int Port { get; set; }

Run command line

dotnet myapp --port 2551
