(defmacro eshell-eval-using-options (name macro-args
options &rest body-forms)
"Process NAME's MACRO-ARGS using a set of command line OPTIONS.
After doing so, settings will be stored in local symbols as declared
by OPTIONS; FORMS will then be evaluated -- assuming all was OK.
The syntax of OPTIONS is:
'((?C nil nil multi-column \"multi-column display\")
(nil \"help\" nil nil \"show this usage display\")
(?r \"reverse\" nil reverse-list \"reverse order while sorting\")
:external \"ls\"
:usage \"[OPTION]... [FILE]...
List information about the FILEs (the current directory by default).
Sort entries alphabetically across.\")
`eshell-eval-using-options' returns the value of the last form in
BODY-FORMS. If instead an external command is run, the tag
`eshell-external' will be thrown with the new process for its value.
Lastly, any remaining arguments will be available in a locally
interned variable `args' (created using a `let' form)."
