Detailed Description

Pull command line args from a JSON document.

This is a wrapper around getopt_long that supports reading arguments from a JX object during command line parsing. The object's keys are interpreted as long option names, and the values are stored in optarg. Currently only string, integer, float, and boolean values are written to optarg. Other value types result in optarg being set to NULL. To access the raw JX struture provided as an option argument, callers can inspect jx_optarg. JX-aware programs can check jx_optarg when reading JX values from the command line to simplify parsing and avoid quoting issues.

Function Documentation

void jx_getopt_push ( struct jx j)

Process command lines from a JX document.

The pushed args will be processesed next, before any remaining command line args or previously pushed JX args.

jThe args to process.
int jx_getopt ( int  argc,
char *const  argv[],
const char *  optstring,
const struct option longopts,
int *  longindex 

Parse the next argument.

If there are no JX args to be processed, this is the same as calling getopt_long() directly.

0 on error. Do not use this as a valid option val.
