Optimist is a light-weight node.js library for option parsing.
It is a library for people who hate option parsing. More specifically,
this module is for people who like all the --bells and -whistlz of
program usage but think optstrings are a waste of time.
With optimist, option parsing doesn't have to suck (as much).
Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.
