An easy to use, expandable command parser meant for text-based games and MUDs. It works by allowing you to define commands that follow a format of sequential arguments, and will resolve the arguments for you (Such as finding mobs, making sure something is a number, etc).
Why use Alaparser over the alternatives?
Documentation for the library is an on-going process, and is not entirely done yet. There is a fairly comprehensive demo as part of the library, that showcases many of the different features of the command syntax.
This project is also hosted on GitHub here, feel free to submit issues there (or here), patches, etc..
