public class Program
{
    public static int Main(string[] args)
    {
        var app = new CommandLineApplication();

        app.HelpOption("-h|--help");
        var optionSubject = app.Option("-s|--subject <SUBJECT>", "The subject", CommandOptionType.SingleValue);

        app.OnExecute(() =>
        {
            var subject = optionSubject.HasValue()
                ? optionSubject.Value()
                : "world";

            Console.WriteLine($"Hello {subject}!");
