I think it is a nice idea, and I saw it already in unravel iirc...

seancorfield05:12:45

I'd be interested to see an outline of what it might actually look like.

richiardiandrea05:12:28

Having said that, they probably have moved to using something else (not good enough?)

seancorfield05:12:27

Well... a) that was very simple argument parsing in the first place b) the spec code was a lot more complex than the code it replaced c) they've gone back to a specific recursive custom parser for their arguments... definitely not a convincing argument for using spec to parse arguments :slightly_smiling_face:

@richiardiandrea yes I moved away from using spec for arg parsing because (a) it wasn't easy to read, (b) it wasn't flexible enough and (c) as simple loop actually works really well

@martinklepsch the above should be ready, I bumped what I could bump and I am trying it locally now :wink:
