 % wordlist --lang FR foo

Filter by regex:

OPTIONS

* marks required options.

Main options

--action=s

Default value:

 "grep"

Valid values:

 ["list_cpan","list_installed","grep"]
--arg-json=s

See --arg.

--arg=s@

Can be specified multiple times.

--color=s

When to highlight search string/matching pattern with color.

Default value:

 "auto"

Valid values:

 ["never","always","auto"]
--detail

Display more information when listing modules/result.

When listing installed modules (`-l`), this means also returning a wordlist's type and language.

When returning grep result, this means also returning wordlist name.

--lang=s@

Only include wordlists of certain language(s).

Can be specified multiple times.

--langs-json=s

Only include wordlists of certain language(s) (JSON-encoded).

See --lang.

--lcpan

Use local CPAN mirror first when available (for -L).

--len=s
--max-len=s
--min-len=s
--no-ignore-case
--num=s, -n

Return (at most) this number of words (0 = unlimited).

Default value:

 0
--or

Match any word in query instead of the default "all".

--random, -r

Pick random words (must set --num to positive number).

--types-json=s, -t

Only include wordlists of certain type(s) (JSON-encoded).

See --types.

--types=s@

Only include wordlists of certain type(s).

By convention, language information is encoded in the wordlist's name. For example, English wordlists have names matching `EN::*` or `Word::EN::*` or `Char::EN::*` or `Phrase::EN::*`.

Can be specified multiple times.

--wordlist=s@, -w

Select one or more wordlist modules.

Can be specified multiple times.

--wordlists-json=s

Select one or more wordlist modules (JSON-encoded).

See --wordlist.

-l

List installed WordList::* modules.

See --action.

-L

List WordList::* modules on CPAN.

See --action.

Configuration options

--config-path=filename

Set path to configuration file.

Can be specified multiple times.

--config-profile=s

Set configuration profile to use.

--no-config

Do not use any configuration file.

Environment options

--no-env

Do not read environment for default options.

Output options

--format=s

Choose output format, e.g. json, text.

Default value:

 undef
--json

Set output format to json.

--naked-res

When outputing as JSON, strip result envelope.

Default value:

 0

By default, when outputing as JSON, the full enveloped result is returned, e.g.:

    [200,"OK",[1,2,3],{"func.extra"=>4}]

The reason is so you can get the status (1st element), status message (2nd element) as well as result metadata/extra result (4th element) instead of just the result (3rd element). However, sometimes you want just the result, e.g. when you want to pipe the result for more post-processing. In this case you can use `--naked-res` so you just get:

    [1,2,3]

Other options

--help, -h, -?

Display help message and exit.

--version, -v

Display program's version and exit.

COMPLETION

The script comes with a companion shell completer script (_wordlist) for this script.

bash

To activate bash completion for this script, put:

 complete -C _wordlist wordlist

in your bash startup (e.g. ~/.bashrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.

It is recommended, however, that you install modules using cpanm-shcompgen which can activate shell completion for scripts immediately.

tcsh

To activate tcsh completion for this script, put:

 complete wordlist 'p/*/`wordlist`/'

in your tcsh startup (e.g. ~/.tcshrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.

It is also recommended to install shcompgen (see above).

other shells

For fish and zsh, install shcompgen as described above.

CONFIGURATION FILE

This script can read configuration files. Configuration files are in the format of IOD, which is basically INI with some extra features.

By default, these names are searched for configuration filenames (can be changed using --config-path): ~/.config/wordlist.conf, ~/wordlist.conf, or /etc/wordlist.conf.

All found files will be read and merged.

To disable searching for configuration files, pass --no-config.

You can put multiple profiles in a single file by using section names like [profile=SOMENAME] or [SOMESECTION profile=SOMENAME]. Those sections will only be read if you specify the matching --config-profile SOMENAME.

You can also put configuration for multiple programs inside a single file, and use filter program=NAME in section names, e.g. [program=NAME ...] or [SOMESECTION program=NAME]. The section will then only be used when the reading program matches.

Finally, you can filter a section by environment variable using the filter env=CONDITION in section names. For example if you only want a section to be read if a certain environment variable is true: [env=SOMEVAR ...] or [SOMESECTION env=SOMEVAR ...]. If you only want a section to be read when the value of an environment variable has value equals something: [env=HOSTNAME=blink ...] or [SOMESECTION env=HOSTNAME=blink ...]. If you only want a section to be read when the value of an environment variable does not equal something: [env=HOSTNAME!=blink ...] or [SOMESECTION env=HOSTNAME!=blink ...]. If you only want a section to be read when an environment variable contains something: [env=HOSTNAME*=server ...] or [SOMESECTION env=HOSTNAME*=server ...]. Note that currently due to simplistic parsing, there must not be any whitespace in the value being compared because it marks the beginning of a new section filter or section name.
