* g_option_context_new:
* @parameter_string: a string which is displayed in
* the first line of <option>--help</option> output, after
* the first line of <option>--help</option> output, after the
* usage summary
* <literal><replaceable>programname</replaceable> [OPTION...]</literal>
*
* Creates a new option context.
*
* The @parameter_text can serve multiple purposes. It can be used
* to add descriptions for "rest" arguments, which are not parsed by
* the #GOptionContext, typically something like "FILES" or
* "FILE1 FILE2...". (If you are using #G_OPTION_REMAINING for
* collecting "rest" arguments, GLib handles this automatically by
* using the @arg_description of the corresponding #GOptionEntry in
* the usage summary.)
*
* Another common usage is to give a summary of the program
* functionality. This can be a short summary on the same line,
* like " - frob the strings", or a longer description in a paragraph
* below the usage summary. In this case, @parameter_string should start
* with two newlines, to separate the description from the usage summary:
* "\n\nA program to frob strings, which will..."
*
* Returns: a newly created #GOptionContext, which must be
* freed with g_option_context_free() after use.
