Parsing Command Line arguments

Introduction

Most command line tools rely on arguments passed to the program upon its execution. Instead of prompting for input, these programs expect data or specific flags (which become booleans) to be set. This allows both the user and other programs to run the Python file passing it data as it starts. This section explains and demonstrates the implementation and usage of command line arguments in Python.
