Process a list of flags (usually obtained from
getArgs/expandArgsAt) with a mode. Returns
Left and an error message if the command line fails to parse,
or Right and the associated value.
Process the flags obtained by getArgs
with a mode. Displays an error and exits
with failure if the command line fails to parse, or returns the
associated value. Implemented in terms of process
function makes use of the following environment variables:
- $CMDARGS_COMPLETE - causes the program to produce
completions using complete, then exit. Completions are based on
the result of getArgs, the index of the current argument is
taken from $CMDARGS_COMPLETE (set it to - to
complete the last argument), and the index within that argument is
taken from $CMDARGS_COMPLETE_POS (if set).
- $CMDARGS_HELPER/$CMDARGS_HELPER_PROG -
uses the helper mechanism for entering command line programs as
described in System.Console.CmdArgs.Helper.
Process a list of flags (usually obtained from getArgs

command line fails to parse, or returns the associated value.
Implemeneted in terms of process

If you are in IO
you will probably get a better user experience
by calling processValueIO
but on failure prints to stderr and exits the
