Information about how to convert command line strings to Python objects.

Action objects are used by an ArgumentParser to represent the information needed to parse a single argument from one or more strings from the command line. The keyword arguments to the Action constructor are also all attributes of Action instances.

Keyword Arguments:
  • which (- option_strings -- A list of command-line option strings) -- should be associated with this action.

  • object (- dest -- The name of the attribute to hold the created) --

  • be (- nargs -- The number of command-line arguments that should) --

    consumed. By default, one argument will be consumed and a single value will be produced. Other values include:

    • N (an integer) consumes N arguments (and produces a list)

    • '?' consumes zero or one arguments

    • '*' consumes zero or more arguments (and produces a list)

    • '+' consumes one or more arguments (and produces a list)

    Note that the difference between the default and nargs=1 is that with the default, a single value will be produced, while with nargs=1, a list containing a single value will be produced.

  • the (- metavar -- The name to be used for the option's argument with) -- option uses an action that takes no values.

  • specified. (- default -- The value to be produced if the option is not) --

  • and (- type -- A callable that accepts a single string argument,) -- returns the converted value. The standard Python types str, int, float, and complex are useful examples of such callables. If None, str is used.

  • None, (- choices -- A container of values that should be allowed. If not) -- after a command-line argument has been converted to the appropriate type, an exception will be raised if it is not a member of this collection.

  • the -- command line. This is only meaningful for optional command-line arguments.

  • argument. (- help -- The help string describing the) --

  • the -- help string. If None, the 'dest' value will be used as the name.
