Getopt.PHP is a library for command-line argument processing. It supports PHP version 5.3 and above.


  • Supports both short (eg. -v) and long (eg. --version) options
  • Option aliasing, ie. an option can have both a long and a short version
  • Collapsed short options (eg. -abc instead of -a -b -c)
  • Cumulative options (eg. -vvv)
  • Options may take optional or mandatory arguments
  • Two alternative notations for long options with arguments: --option value and --option=value
  • Collapsed short options with mandatory argument at the end (eg. -ab 1 instead of -a -b 1)
