Xflags: fast-to-compile proc macro for CLI args

            required path: PathBuf

            optional -v, --verbose
        }
    }

    // generated start
    // The following code is generated by `xflags` macro.
    // Run `env UPDATE_XFLAGS=1 cargo build` to regenerate.
    #[derive(Debug)]
    pub struct MyCommand {
        pub path: PathBuf,

        pub verbose: bool,
    }

    impl MyCommand {
        pub const HELP: &'static str = Self::HELP_;

        pub fn from_env() -> xflags::Result<Self> {
            Self::from_env_()
        }

        pub fn from_vec(args: Vec<std::ffi::OsString>) -> xflags::Result<Self> {
            Self::from_vec_(args)

    }
    // generated end
}

fn main() {
    let flags = flags::MyCommand::from_env();
    println!("{:#?}", flags);

The src-based part of the API looks original and interesting: having the option to manually cache the output of a proc-macro can come in handy :slightly_smiling_face:
