NAME
       args - manipulate and output command arguments.

SYNOPSIS
       args [options] args...

DESCRIPTION
       This  command  is used to manipulate and	echo command line arguments to
       standard	out.  This can include	adding	quotes	around	each  argument
       passed  or  a separator,	or to output each argument on a	separate line.
       The program source also offers a	basic example of how to	use shell  ar-
       gument parsing and localization in ucommon.

OPTIONS
       --delim=char
	      Set  a  deliminator  character, such as ',', to use between each
	      argument when outputing arguments.

       --directory
	      If argument is a directory, list	directory  contents  as	 argu-
	      ments.

       --follow
	      If argument is a directory and a symlink,	follow symlinks	recur-
	      sively.

       --lines
	      Output each argument on a	separate line.

       --quote=char|pair
	      Set a quote or special leading and trailing pair	of  characters
	      to surround each argument	with when output.  A typical use might
	      be --quote=() to surround	arguments in parenthesis.

       --recursive
	      If argument is a directory, recursively scan directory  and  any
	      subdirectory contents as arguments.
