```` is a Simple Argument Parser based on argparse
which is extremely powerful. Its features are

1. zero boilerplate (no decorators)
2. supports arbitrarily nested subcommands with an easy sintax
3. automatically generates a simple parser from a Python module and
   a hierarchic parser from a Python package.

Here is a minimal example of usage:

.. code-block:: python

 >>> def convert_archive(input_, output=None, inplace=False, *, out='/tmp'):
 ...    "Example"
 ...    print(input_, output, inplace, out)
 >>> convert_archive.input_ = 'input file or archive'
 >>> convert_archive.inplace = 'convert inplace'
 >>> convert_archive.output = 'output archive'
 >>> convert_archive.out = 'output directory'
 >>> parser(convert_archive, prog='app').print_help()
 usage: app [-h] [-i] [-o /tmp] input [output]
 positional arguments:
   input                input file or archive
   output               output archive
 optional arguments:
   -h, --help           show this help message and exit
   -i, --inplace        convert inplace
   -o /tmp, --out /tmp  output directory
 >>> run(convert_archive, argv=['', '']) False /tmp
 >>> run(convert_archive, argv=['', '-i', '-o', '/tmp/x']) None True /tmp/x
