       wbemcli	  is	a    command	line   based   CIM   Client.   It   uses   one	 of   the
       gc|gcd|dc|ec|ecn|gi|ci|mi|di|ei|ein|ai|ain|ri|rin|gp|sp|cm|cmx operations  and  the  fully
       qualified  path	to the CIM Object to get to the host and execute the specified operation.
       This implementation is CIMOM library independent and can be used with all  WBEM	compliant
       CIMOM  implementations.	The objectPath parameter is used to locate the CIM object and has
       the following format:


       The objectPath should be enclosed in single quotes so that double quoted
	      strings are perserved by the command line shell. Refer to the examples section.

       The only scheme supported is http. Example:

       The prop=value[,...] parameter is used to specify <Property>=<Value> pairs for the ci,  mi
       and  sp	operations.  Only one <Property>=<Value> pair must be specified for the sp opera-

	      stringProp="a string",booleanProp=true,numericProp=25

       Arrays of property values are supported by specifying additional values
	      separated by commas

	      stringProp="a string","another string",numericProp=25,49,12

       The prop[,...] parameter specifies the properties to be returned.  One prop must be speci-
       fied  for  the  gp operation. For other operations this parameter is optional, if none are
       specified all properties will be returned.


       The method[.param=value[,...] parameter is used to specify <Parameter>=<Value>  pairs  for
       the cm operation.

	      Method2Execute.stringParam="a string",booleanParam=true,numericParam=25

       Arrays of property values are supported by specifying additional values
	      separated by commas

	      Method2Execute.stringParam="a string","another string",numericParam=25,49,12

       Supported operations are:

       gc     get class

       gcd    get class definition

       dc     delete class

       ec     enumerate classes

       ecn    enumerate class names

       gi     get instance

       ci     create instance

       mi     modify instance

       di     delete instance

       ei     enumerate instances

       ein    enumerate instance names

       ai     enumerate association instances

       ain    enumerate association instance names

       ri     enumerate reference instances

       rin    enumerate reference instance names

       gp     get property

       sp     set property

       cm     call method

       cmx    call method (return XML)

       -h     Print a help message

       -nl    Start a new line for every property returned

       -t     Append array ([]), reference (&) and key property (#) indicators to property names

       -cte   Enable support for chunked responses from CIMOM

       -v     Show version information

       -dx    Show XML messages payload as received from CIMOM

       -dr    Delineate references with { } pairs

	      Do not verify the server certificate for https URLs (useful for testing)

	      CA certificate file (required for https URLS unless -noverify is specified)

	      Client certificate file (if the CIM server requires client certificates)

	      Client private key file (required if -clientcert is specified)

       -ac    association class name (ai, ain only)

       -arc   result class name (ai, ain, rin, ri only)

       -ar    role name (ai, ain, rin, ri only)

       -arr   result role name (ai, ain only)

       wbemcli requires either libghttp, libwww, or winhttp, depending on build options used.

       To get all instances of rpm_packages, i.e. all installed rpm packages on the local system,
       the following command can be used:

	wbemcli ei 'http://localhost:5988/root/cimv2:rpm_package'

       The get instance operation can be specified to get more information about a certain  pack-

	wbemcli   gi   'http://localhost:5988/root/cimv2:rpm_package.name="glibc"'   The   create
	instance (ci) operation can be called using the following format example.  Property  val-
	ues can also be specified/add to the sytax.

	wbemcli     ci	  'http://localhost:5988/root/cimv2:TST_InstanceProperties.CreationClass-
	Name="TST_InstanceProperties",Id="Instance  #2"'  'CreationClassName="TST_InstanceProper-
	ties",Id="Instance #2",Property_string2="This is instance#2",Property_uint8=250'

	More command line examples can be found from the wbemcli/samples directory.

Host indirection support
       The scheme and host specification in the object path can be replaced by an arbitrary token
       that will be used to locate the proper scheme and host specification in	./wbemcli.ind  or
       any  file  specified via the WBEMCLI_IND environment variable.  The format of this file is
       as follows:

	    <token>: <scheme>://[user:pwd@]<host>:<port>

       Assuming the following entry in ./wbemcli.ind:

	    myCimom: http://localhost:5988

       The example in the previous section can then be specified as:

	     wbemcli gi 'myCimom/root/cimv2:rpm_package.name="glibc"'

	      The default CA certificate file. Can be overriden with -cacert.
