cmd2 0.6.7

Extra features for standard library's cmd module

Package Documentation

Enhancements for standard library's cmd module.

Drop-in replacement adds several features for command-prompt tools:

  • Searchable command history (commands: "hi", "li", "run")
  • Load commands from file, save to file, edit commands in file
  • Multi-line commands
  • Case-insensitive commands
  • Special-character shortcut commands (beyond cmd's "@" and "!")
  • Settable environment parameters
  • Parsing commands with flags
  • > (filename), >> (filename) redirect output to file
  • < (filename) gets input from file
  • bare >, >>, < redirect to/from paste buffer
  • accepts abbreviated commands when unambiguous
  • py enters interactive Python console
  • test apps against sample session transcript (see example/example.py)

Useable without modification anywhere cmd is used; simply import cmd2.Cmd in place of cmd.Cmd.

Running 2to3 <http://docs.python.org/library/2to3.html> against cmd2.py generates working, Python3-based code.

See docs at http://packages.python.org/cmd2/
