Auto-generate an (argc, argv) processor, usage message, and manpage

Clig generates C code to take apart the typical command-line arguments given to a C program. Input to clig is a simple description file that specifies the name and number of options, their type Flag, String, Float, Int and permissible range, and which options are mandatory. From this, clig will generate self-contained C code to include in your program, a usage message, and a manual page skeleton.

Clig does a lot more than getopt!
