App::CLI::Command - Base class for App::CLI commands SYNOPSIS
package MyApp::List; use base qw(App::CLI::Command); use constant options => ( 'verbose' => 'verbose', 'n|name=s' => 'name', ); sub run { my ( $self, $arg ) = @_; print "verbose" if $self->{verbose}; my $name = $self->{name}; # get arg following long option --name # any thing your want this command do } # See App::CLI for information of how to invoke (sub)command. DESCRIPTION
subcommand() return old genre subcommand of $self; cascading() return instance of cascading subcommand invoked if it was listed in your constant subcommands. cascadable() return package name of subcommand if the subcommand invoked is in you constant subcommands otherwise, return undef brief_usage ($file) Display an one-line brief usage of the command object. Optionally, a file could be given to extract the usage from the POD. usage ($want_detail) Display usage. If $want_detail is true, the "DESCRIPTION" section is displayed as well. loc_text $text Localizes the body of (formatted) text in $text, and returns the localized version. filename Return the filename for the command module.

App::Cmd::Setup - helper for setting up App::Cmd classes VERSION
version 0.318 OVERVIEW
App::Cmd::Setup is a helper library, used to set up base classes that will be used as part of an App::Cmd program. For the most part you should refer to the tutorial for how you should use this library. This class is useful in three scenarios: when writing your App::Cmd subclass Instead of writing: package MyApp; use base 'App::Cmd'; can write: package MyApp; use App::Cmd::Setup -app; The benefits of doing this are mostly minor, and relate to sanity-checking your class. The significant benefit is that this form allows you to specify plugins, as in: package MyApp; use App::Cmd::Setup -app => { plugins => [ 'Prompt' ] }; Plugins are described in App::Cmd::Tutorial and App::Cmd::Plugin. when writing abstract base classes for commands That is: when you write a subclass of App::Cmd::Command that is intended for other commands to use as their base class, you should use App::Cmd::Setup. For example, if you want all the commands in MyApp to inherit from MyApp::Command, you may want to write that package like this: package MyApp::Command; use App::Cmd::Setup -command; Do not confuse this with the way you will write specific commands: package MyApp::Command::mycmd; use MyApp -command; Again, this form mostly performs some validation and setup behind the scenes for you. You can use "base" if you prefer. when writing App::Cmd plugins App::Cmd::Plugin is a mechanism that allows an App::Cmd class to inject code into all its command classes, providing them with utility routines. To write a plugin, you must use App::Cmd::Setup. As seen above, you must also use App::Cmd::Setup to set up your App::Cmd subclass if you wish to consume plugins. For more information on writing plugins, see App::Cmd::Manual and App::Cmd::Plugin. AUTHOR
