get_options — Parse a string into a list of integers


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


const char * str

String to be parsed

int nints

size of integer array

int * ints

integer array


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).
