Bash argument parsing code generator

Argbash is not a parsing library, but it is rather a code generator that generates a library tailor-made for your script. It lets you to describe arguments your script should take and then, you can generate the bash code. You can either include in your script or let Argbash do it for you (in any case, from then on, you can forget about Argbash altogether). Argbash is very simple to use and the generated code is relatively nice to read. Moreover, argument definitions stay embedded in the script, so when you need to update the parsing logic, you just re-run the argbash script on the already generated script.
