import_keyvalue_pairs — Import an argument list into the named array


::rivet::import_keyvalue_pairs ?arrayName? ?argsList?


key-value pairs, like "-foo bar" are stored in the array ?arrayName?. In that case, the value "bar" would be stored in the element "foo"

If "--" appears or a key doesn't begin with "-", the rest of the arg list is stored in the special args element of the array.

keyvalue_map(a1)   = v1
keyvalue_map(a2)   = v2
keyvalue_map(a3)   = v3
keyvalue_map(args) = 1 2 3 4 5
