16 Parsing command line arguments

The library (vicare getopts) implements basic parsing of Unix–style command line arguments. It is meant to be used as low–level module in an infrastructure for command line interface programs (CLI). It is alternative to SRFI-37, SRFI-37 a program argument processor.

It is suggested to import this library with the prefix ‘getopts.’, as in:

(import (vicare)
  (prefix (vicare getopts) getopts.))
