improve consistency in parsing primitives from strings

Mark OLESEN requested to merge feature-string-parsing into develop

The motivation is to provide a simpler and safer means of extracting integers and labels from strings. There are several benefits:

  • catch bad label/scalar input for command-line options/arguments which may be human generated or via scripts.
  • easier/clear to work with when input has already been lexed, without using an IStringStream()
  • work directly with C++ strings instead of C-string.
