get_options: Parse a string into a list of integers

NAME

get_options - Parse a string into a list of integers

SYNOPSIS

char * get_options(const char str, int nints, int ints);

ARGUMENTS

str

String to be parsed

nints

size of integer array

ints

integer array

DESCRIPTION

This function parses a string containing a comma-separated list of integers, a hyphen-separated range of _positive_ integers, or a combination of both. The parse halts when the array is full, or when no more numbers can be retrieved from the string.

Return value is the character in the string which caused the parse to end (typically a null terminator, if str is completely parseable).
