SRFI 37: args-fold: a program argument processor

by Anthony Carrico

status: final (2003/1/13)

Abstract

Many operating systems make the set of argument strings used to invoke a program available (often following the program name string in an array called argv). Most programs need to parse and process these argument strings in one way or another. This SRFI describes a set of procedures that support processing program arguments according to POSIX and GNU C Library Reference Manual guidelines.
