Overview

The classes in the Command namespace are controller objects for the command-line interface.

A Command object is run via the class method run (see Base.run). Its parameters are the command-line arguments (typically ARGV).

A Command object utilizes an Options object to interpret the command- line arguments, then processes files and/or objects and finally uses an Output object to present the results to the user.

To create a new command Foo you must first subclass any of

  • Command::Base

  • Command::BaseList

  • Command::BaseObject

Then you have to subclass Options and Output classes as well, to finally get something like this:

  • Command::Foo

  • Command::Options::Foo

  • Command::Output::Foo

For an example, take a look at the Suggest command.
