 * Parse one item in an -L begin,end option w.r.t. the notional file
 * object 'cb_data' consisting of 'lines' lines.
 * The 'nth_line_cb' callback is used to determine the start of the
 * line 'lno' inside the 'cb_data'.  The caller is expected to already
 * have a suitable map at hand to make this a constant-time lookup.
 * 'anchor' is the 1-based line at which relative range specifications
 * should be anchored. Absolute ranges are unaffected by this value.
 * Returns 0 in case of success and -1 if there was an error.  The
 * actual range is stored in *begin and *end.  The counting starts
 * at 1!  In case of error, the caller should show usage message.

typedef const char *(*nth_line_fn_t)(void *data, long lno);

 * Scan past a range argument that could be parsed by
 * 'parse_range_arg', to help the caller determine the start of the
 * filename in '-L n,m:file' syntax.
 * Returns a pointer to the first character after the 'n,m' part, or
 * NULL in case the argument is obviously malformed.
