// Accept many different kinds of command line argument:

  bool "hello"
  default n
    usage: hello [-a] [-b string] [-c number] [-d list] [-e count] [...]

    A hello world program.  You don't need this.

    Mostly used as an example/skeleton file for adding new commands,
    occasionally nice to test kernel booting via "init=/bin/hello".

#define FOR_hello
#include "toys.h"

// Hello doesn't use these globals, they're here for example/skeleton purposes.

  long c_number;
