OSGi::Osgish::Command - Base object for commands
This is the base command from which all osgish commands should be extended. It provides registration hooks so that the command handler can determine the position of this command in the menu structure. Additionally it provides common methods useful for each command to perform its action.
A OSGi::Osgish::Command is a collection of shell commands, grouped in a certain context. E.g OSGi::Osgish::Command::Bundle groups all bundle related actions. It can be reused in different contexts and hence can occur at different places in the menu structure.
- $command_handler = new OSGi::Osgish::Command($osgish)
Constructor, which should not called be directly on this module but on a submodule. In fact, it will be called (indirectly) only by the OSGi::Osgish::CommandHandler during the command registration process. The single argument required is the central osgish object.
- $global_commands = $cmd->global_commands
This method is called by the command handler during registration in order to obtain the global commands which are always present in the menu. The default implementation returns
undefwhich means that no global commands should be registered. Overwrite this to provide a command hashref as known to Term::ShellUI for setting the global commands.
- $top_commands = $cmd->top_commands
This method is called by the command handler during registration in order to obtain the top commands which are present in the top level menu. The default implementation returns
undefwhich means that no top commands are to be registered. Overwrite this to provide a command hashref as known to Term::ShellUI for setting the top commands.
- $osgish = $cmd->osgish
Get the osgish object used during construction. This is a convenience method for sublassed commands.
- $complete_handler = $cmd->complete
Convenience method to get the OSGi::Osgish::CompletionHandler for getting various command line completions.
- $agent = $cmd->agent
- @colors = $cmd->color(@color_ids)
Return a list of ANSI color strings for the given symbolic color names which are looked up from the current color theme. If no coloring is enabled, empty strings are returned. This method dispatched directly to the underylyin
Rerturn a sub (closure) which can be used as a command to update the context stack managed by the command handler. Update in this sense means push the given context ("
context") on the stack, remembering the provided shell commands
$cmdsfor later use when traversing the stack upwards via
- ($opts,@args) = $cmd->extract_command_options($spec,@args);
Extract any options from a command specified via
$spec. This method uses Getopt::Long for extrating the options. It returns a hashref with the extracted options and an array of remaining arguments
- $label = $cmd->format_date($time)
Formats a date like for
Dec 2 18:21 Jun 23 2009
This format is especially useful when used in listing.
Use a pager for printing
$nr_lineslines. Only if
$nr_linesexceeds a certain limit (default: 24), then the pager is used, otherwise
$txtis printed directly.
- $trimmed = $cmd->trim_string($string,$max)
Trim a string
$stringto a certain length
$max, i.e. if
$stringis larger than
$max, then it is truncated to to
...is appended. If it is less or equal, than
$stringis returned unchanged.
- $converted = $cmd->convert_wildcard_pattern_to_regexp($orig)
Convert the wildcards
.to their regexp equivalent and return a regular expression.
