args - manipulate and output command arguments.
args [options] args...
This command is used to manipulate and echo command line arguments to standard out. This can include adding quotes around each argument passed or a separator, or to output each argument on a separate line. The program source also offers a basic example of how to use shell argument parsing and localization in ucommon.
--delim=char Set a deliminator character, such as ',', to use between each argument when outputting arguments. --directory If argument is a directory, list directory contents as arguments. --follow If argument is a directory and a symlink, follow symlinks recursively. --lines Output each argument on a separate line. --quote=char|pair Set a quote or special leading and trailing pair of characters to surround each argument with when output. A typical use might be --quote=() to surround arguments in parenthesis. --recursive If argument is a directory, recursively scan directory and any subdirectory contents as arguments. --reverse Reverse order of arguments. --help Outputs help screen for the user.
