#' Read Command-Line Parameter
#'
#' Reads a command-line parameter passed to an MLflow project
#' MLflow allows you to define named, typed input parameters to your R scripts via the mlflow_param
#' API. This is useful for experimentation, e.g. tracking multiple invocations of the same script
#' with different parameters.

#' # This parametrized script trains a GBM model on the Iris dataset and can be run as an MLflow
#' # project. You can run this script (assuming it's saved at /some/directory/params_example.R)
#' # with custom parameters via:
#' # mlflow_run(entry_point = "params_example.R", uri = "/some/directory",
#' #   parameters = list(num_trees = 200, learning_rate = 0.1))

#' @param name The name of the parameter.

#' @param type Type of this parameter. Required if `default` is not set. If specified,
