/**
 * A formatter of help messages for command line options.
 *
 * <p>
 * Example:
 * </p>
 *
 * <pre>
 * Options options = new Options();
 * options.addOption(OptionBuilder.withLongOpt("file").withDescription("The file to be processed").hasArg().withArgName("FILE").isRequired().create('f'));
 * options.addOption(OptionBuilder.withLongOpt("version").withDescription("Print the version of the application").create('v'));
 * options.addOption(OptionBuilder.withLongOpt("help").create('h'));
 *
 * String header = "Do something useful with an input file\n\n";
 * String footer = "\nPlease report issues at http://example.com/issues";
 *
 * HelpFormatter formatter = new HelpFormatter();
 * formatter.printHelp("myapp", header, options, footer, true);
 * </pre>
 *
 * This produces the following output:
 *
 * <pre>
 * usage: myapp -f &lt;FILE&gt; [-h] [-v]
 * Do something useful with an input file
 *
 *  -f,--file &lt;FILE&gt;   The file to be processed
 *  -h,--help
 *  -v,--version       Print the version of the application
 *
 * Please report issues at http://example.com/issues
 * </pre>
