Extra features for standard library's cmd module

Project description

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

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