   These functions are glibc-specific.

   An  argz  vector  is  a  pointer  to a character buffer together with a
   length.  The intended interpretation of  the  character  buffer  is  an
   array of strings, where the strings are separated by null bytes ('\0').
   If the length is nonzero, the last byte of the buffer must  be  a  null

   These functions are for handling argz vectors.  The pair (NULL,0) is an
   argz vector, and, conversely, argz vectors of length 0 must  have  null
   pointer.   Allocation of nonempty argz vectors is done using malloc(3),
   so that free(3) can be used to dispose of them again.

   argz_add() adds the string str at the  end  of  the  array  *argz,  and
   updates *argz and *argz_len.

   argz_add_sep()  is  similar,  but splits the string str into substrings
   separated by the delimiter delim.  For example, one might use this on a
   UNIX search path with delimiter ':'.

   argz_append()    appends   the   argz   vector   (buf, buf_len)   after
   (*argz, *argz_len) and updates *argz and *argz_len.   (Thus,  *argz_len
   will be increased by buf_len.)

   argz_count()  counts the number of strings, that is, the number of null
   bytes ('\0'), in (argz, argz_len).

   argz_create() converts a UNIX-style argument vector argv, terminated by
   (char *) 0, into an argz vector (*argz, *argz_len).

   argz_create_sep()  converts the null-terminated string str into an argz
   vector (*argz, *argz_len) by breaking it up at every occurrence of  the
   separator sep.

   argz_delete()  removes  the substring pointed to by entry from the argz
   vector (*argz, *argz_len) and updates *argz and *argz_len.

   argz_extract() is the opposite of argz_create().   It  takes  the  argz
   vector  (argz, argz_len)  and  fills  the  array  starting at argv with
   pointers to the substrings, and a final NULL, making a UNIX-style  argv
   vector.  The array argv must have room for argz_count(argz, argz_len) +
   1 pointers.

   argz_insert()  is  the  opposite  of  argz_delete().   It  inserts  the
   argument    entry   at   position   before   into   the   argz   vector
   (*argz, *argz_len) and updates *argz and *argz_len.  If before is NULL,
   then entry will inserted at the end.

   argz_next()  is a function to step trough the argz vector.  If entry is
   NULL, the first entry is returned.  Otherwise, the entry  following  is
   returned.  It returns NULL if there is no following entry.

   argz_replace()  replaces each occurrence of str with with, reallocating
   argz as necessary.  If replace_count is non-NULL,  *replace_count  will
   be incremented by the number of replacements.

   argz_stringify()  is  the opposite of argz_create_sep().  It transforms
   the argz vector into a normal string by replacing all null bytes ('\0')
   except the last by sep.


   All  argz  functions  that  do  memory allocation have a return type of
   error_t, and return 0 for success, and ENOMEM if  an  allocation  error
