    """Parses given list of arguments using given parser, calls the relevant
    function and prints the result.

    The target function should expect one positional argument: the
    :class:`argparse.Namespace` object. However, if the function is decorated with
    :func:`~argh.decorators.plain_signature`, the positional and named
    arguments from the namespace object are passed to the function instead
    of the object itself.

    :param parser:

        the ArgumentParser instance.

    :param argv:

        a list of strings representing the arguments. If `None`, ``sys.argv``
        is used instead. Default is `None`.

    :param add_help_command:

        if `True`, converts first positional argument "help" to a keyword
        argument so that ``help foo`` becomes ``foo --help`` and displays usage
        information for "foo". Default is `True`.

    :param output_file:

        A file-like object for output. If `None`, the resulting lines are
        collected and returned as a string. Default is ``sys.stdout``.

    :param errors_file:

        Same as `output_file` but for ``sys.stderr``.

    :param raw_output:

        If `True`, results are written to the output file raw, without adding
        whitespaces or newlines between yielded strings. Default is `False`.

    :param completion:

        If `True`, shell tab completion is enabled. Default is `True`. (You
        will also need to install it.)  See :mod:`argh.completion`.

    By default the exceptions are not wrapped and will propagate. The only
    exception that is always wrapped is :class:`~argh.exceptions.CommandError`
    which is interpreted as an expected event so the traceback is hidden.
    You can also mark arbitrary exceptions as "wrappable" by using the
    :func:`~argh.decorators.wrap_errors` decorator.
