.nf
#include <libconfig.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
	int lc_p_ret, lc_rv_ret;
	char *filename = NULL;

	lc_rv_ret = lc_register_var("File", LC_VAR_STRING,
	                            &filename, 'f');

	if (lc_rv_ret != 0) {
		fprintf(stderr, "Error registering variable: %i.\\n",
		        lc_geterrno());
		return(EXIT_FAILURE);
	}

	lc_p_ret = lc_process(argc, argv, "example", LC_CONF_APACHE,
	                      NULL);

	lc_cleanup();

	if (lc_p_ret != 0) {
		fprintf(stderr, "Error processing configuration: \\
		        %s\\n", lc_geterrstr());
		return(EXIT_FAILURE);
