autodoc crashes when encounters option parser

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

"make html" reports build error:

sphinx-build: error: no such option: -b

when autodoc encounters following line:

(options, args) = parser.parse_args()

parser is the OptionParser from optparse module.

    As suggested in the stackoverflow issue, don't unconditionally run code on import in the modules you autodoc.

    Rather use a if __name__ == '__main__': clause to run your "script code".

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
