Usage: (format-arg-count format)
Sometimes, it is useful to simply be able to figure out how many arguments are required by a format string. For example, if you are extracting a format string for the purpose of generating a macro to invoke a printf-like function, you can run the formatting string through this function to determine how many arguments to provide for in the macro. e.g. for this extraction text:
/*=fumble bumble * fmt: 'stumble %s: %d\n' =*/
You may wish to generate a macro:
#define BUMBLE(a1,a2) printf_like(something,(a1),(a2))
You can do this by knowing that the format needs two arguments.
