The Args object will have one property corresponding to each of the arguments in the command line template.

For example, if the command line template is NAME/K,SIZE/N, the Args object would have two properties, called name and size.

The type returned by each property is also defined by the template. In the above example, name would return a string and size an int.
A /S argument returns a bool, a /N argument returns an int, and all other argument types return a string. Note that a /O argument will also return a bool if no string value is provided on the command line.
If an argument is marked in the template as /M (multiple) then it returns a Vector containing elements of the appropriate type.

The got_arg property returns an object with a bool child property for each argument in the template. It lets you test if a particular argument was provided on the command line, before you actually query for the value of the argument. For example, If Args.got_arg.size Then…
