This set of macros allows portable procedures that accept variable argument lists to be written. Routines that have variable argument lists (such as printf(3C)) but do not use varargs are inherently non-portable, as different machines use different argument-passing
va_alist is used as the parameter list in a function header.
va_dcl is a declaration for va_alist. No semicolon should follow va_dcl.
va_list is a type defined for the variable used to traverse the list.
va_start is called to initialize pvar to the beginning of the list.
va_arg will return the next argument in the list pointed to by pvar. type is the type the argument is expected to be. Different types can be
mixed, but it is up to the routine to know what type of argument is expected, as it cannot be determined at runtime.
va_end is used to clean up.
Multiple traversals, each bracketed by va_start and va_end, are possible.
