Summary

When flang is invoked with no files it waits for input on stdin. Make it
print a message saying this to prevent the user being surprised.

[flang] Add details to --help screen on default behaviour

Add a usage string and a defaults section that clarifies:

  • If no input files are given, f18 reads from stdin
  • If no input files are given, f18 dumps the parse tree.
  • The default behaviour is to exec F18_FC.
  • The fefault F18_FC setting is 'gfortran'

Adds a simple regression test which tests the top and tail of the help
screen and the exit status.

[flang] Add -h as a synonym for help

As expected by user in http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/flang-dev/2020-June/000404.html
