/**
 * @defgroup views_argument_handlers Handlers for arguments
 * @{
 */

/**
 * Base class for arguments.
 *
 * The basic argument works for very simple arguments such as nid and uid
 *
 * Definition terms for this handler:
 * - name field: The field to use for the name to use in the summary, which is
 *               the displayed output. For example, for the node: nid argument,
 *               the argument itself is the nid, but node.title is displayed.
 * - name table: The table to use for the name, should it not be in the same
 *               table as the argument.
 * - empty field name: For arguments that can have no value, such as taxonomy
 *                     which can have "no term", this is the string which
 *                     will be displayed for this lack of value. Be sure to use
 *                     t().
 * - validate type: A little used string to allow an argument to restrict
 *                  which validator is available to just one. Use the
 *                  validator ID. This probably should not be used at all,
 *                  and may disappear or change.
 * - numeric: If set to TRUE this field is numeric and will use %d instead of
 *            %s in queries.
