  @summary
    Validate that the first argument is a string (or an array of strings), and less/equal to than the length of the second argument.
    An optional third parameter can be given the minimum length. It fails if the first argument is not a string or array of strings,
    and if arg 2 and arg 3 are not convertable to a number.

  @return
    validate that the first argument is a string (or an array of strings), and less/equal to than the length of the second argument. Fail compilation if any of the checks fail.

  @example **Usage**

      validate_slength("discombobulate",17)
      validate_slength(["discombobulate","moo"],17)
