GLibOPTION_REMAINING

Declaration

#define G_OPTION_REMAINING 

Description

If a long option in the main group has this name, it is not treated as a regular option. Instead it collects all non-option arguments which would otherwise be left in argv. The option must be of type G_OPTION_ARG_CALLBACK, G_OPTION_ARG_STRING_ARRAY or G_OPTION_ARG_FILENAME_ARRAY.

Using #G_OPTION_REMAINING instead of simply scanning argv for leftover arguments has the advantage that GOption takes care of necessary encoding conversions for strings or filenames.
