duane ellis: (A) a new concept called "Name Value Pair" or NVP, in simple terms: Think: "String" and "Value". There can be many strings - all related to a single value, for examle: "T", "t", "y", "1", "yes", all can represent "truth", the reverse mapping is more simplistic - the first matching number wins. (B) a new "getopt" like feature for Jim - that simplifies argument parsing in complex functions, normally this would be used in conjunction with either an NVP table of options, or a more simpler Enumeration table. In contrast to the GNU "getopt" package, this is more of a "object model or code oriented" solution then a pure data structure used by GNU getopt, or the main stream Tcl/Tk option processing. git-svn-id: svn://svn.berlios.de/openocd/trunk@936 b42882b7-edfa-0310-969c-e2dbd0fdcd60
