// This class works with command lines: building and parsing.
// Arguments with prefixes ('--', '-', and on Windows, '/') are switches.
// Switches will precede all other arguments without switch prefixes.
// Switches can optionally have values, delimited by '=', e.g., "-switch=value".
// An argument of "--" will terminate switch parsing during initialization,
// interpreting subsequent tokens as non-switch arguments, regardless of prefix.
// There is a singleton read-only CommandLine that represents the command line
// that the current process was started with. It must be initialized in main().
