It's really dependent on the command. Command arguments
come in as a string, and each command has to parse them.
It's just that in this particular case, the command tries
to parse the string by using strtol. Nicer commands use
one of gdb's built-in parsing functions, which take into
account things like expressions and convenience variables.
