# The PARSE_ARGUMENTS macro will take the arguments of another macro and define
# several variables. The first argument to PARSE_ARGUMENTS is a prefix to put on
# all variables it creates. The second argument is a list of names, and the
# third argument is a list of options. Both of these lists should be quoted. The
# rest of PARSE_ARGUMENTS are arguments from another macro to be parsed.
#
# PARSE_ARGUMENTS(prefix arg_names options arg1 arg2...)
#
# For each item in options, PARSE_ARGUMENTS will create a variable with that
# name, prefixed with prefix_. So, for example, if prefix is MY_MACRO and
# options is OPTION1;OPTION2, then PARSE_ARGUMENTS will create the variables
# MY_MACRO_OPTION1 and MY_MACRO_OPTION2. These variables will be set to true if
# the option exists in the command line or false otherwise.
#
#For each item in arg_names, PARSE_ARGUMENTS will create a variable with that
#name, prefixed with prefix_. Each variable will be filled with the arguments
#that occur after the given arg_name is encountered up to the next arg_name or
#the end of the arguments. All options are removed from these
#lists. PARSE_ARGUMENTS also creates a prefix_DEFAULT_ARGS variable containing
#the list of all arguments up to the first arg_name encountered.
#
#Here is a simple, albeit impractical, example of using PARSE_ARGUMENTS that
#demonstrates its behavior.
#
# SET(arguments
# hello OPTION3 world
# LIST3 foo bar
# OPTION2
# LIST1 fuz baz
# )
#
# PARSE_ARGUMENTS(ARG "LIST1;LIST2;LIST3" "OPTION1;OPTION2;OPTION3" ${arguments})
#
# PARSE_ARGUMENTS creates 7 variables and sets them as follows:
# ARG_DEFAULT_ARGS: hello;world
# ARG_LIST1: fuz;baz
# ARG_LIST2:
# ARG_LIST3: foo;bar
# ARG_OPTION1: FALSE
# ARG_OPTION2: TRUE
# ARG_OPTION3: TRUE
#
# If you don't have any options, use an empty string in its place.
# PARSE_ARGUMENTS(ARG "LIST1;LIST2;LIST3" "" ${arguments})
# Likewise if you have no lists.
# PARSE_ARGUMENTS(ARG "" "OPTION1;OPTION2;OPTION3" ${arguments})
