The gflags package contains a C++ library that implements commandline flags processing. It includes built-in support for standard types such as string and the ability to define flags in the source file in which they are used. Online documentation available at:
The official GitHub mirror of the Chromium source
The word "Zygote" will actually be really clear to anyone who's been exposed to Chrome's multiprocess architecture.
> A zygote process is one that listens for spawn requests from a main process and forks itself in response. Generally they are used because forking a process after some expensive setup has been performed can save time and share extra memory pages.
With that background, --zygote isn't actually a flag at all. If you click on it it takes you to a string constant, but that string is actually a value for the --type flag. e.g. an unsandboxed zygote process would have `--type=zygote`.
`--type` is itself an internal flag, explaining it's lax description of "Flags spied upon from other layers.". However it is briefly described in the documentation I linked above.

I don't know. Judging from source blame, flagfile has been in gflags since 2007 at the latest, and 2007 is also when the command line length limit was lifted: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/b6a2fea39318e43fee8...
A guide to help you write better command-line programs, taking traditional UNIX principles and updating them for the modern day.
Kind of related but not: if you are interested in cli design I recommend this guide as well: https://clig.dev/
I think people are overly focused on how crappy Unix tools from the previous millennia are (ls, sendmail, dd, etc…) but I do truly believe that cli tools can be ergonomic because I have used and built tools which feel ergonomic.
