I'm having a small question about optionparse.
Normaly optionparser will format the help text according to the
I just wondered if there is any way to insert a line breakk into an
options help text.
from optparse import OptionParser
parser = OptionParser()
help="This option is really really complicated"
" and I'd like to write"
" a few paragrpahs to explain how it works."
"\nHowever the line breaks are stripped off"
" and it's thus difficult to structure the help text")
args = ['-h']
Is there any trick to force a new paragraph/ line break before the word
Thanks in advance for suggestions.
