Re: [NSE][patch] Load script-args from a file

This is an interesting idea. It might be useful to have some kind of
scan profiles, that would ship with nmap. Do we have something like
that already? Should a profile contain just the script arguments?
Perhaps it should have the script names as well? How about other scan
parameters? I believe Zenmap has some kind of profiles. Are these
usable from the command line?

Hey list!

Here's a patch to let users specify a file from which to load
script-args. Example:

$ cat ~/.nmap/myargs
smbdomain=WORKGROUP,
smbpassword=MyPa$$,

$ nmap --script smb-* --script-args file=myargs target.example.com

Simply put, it checks for a script-arg of "file", parses the contents
of the file the same way we currently parse the argument to --script-args,
combines it with any arguments on the command line, then goes about
business as usual. Any arguments on the command line supersede ones in the
file. The file can be an absolute path, or a path relative to Nmap's usual
search path (NMAPDIR, etc.)
