Project description

pyselect
========

A Python library for easily getting user input from multiple items in a list, emulating the bash(1) select builtin function.

============
Usage
============

Pyselect wraps raw_input, more or less::

In [1]: import pyselect
In [2]: pyselect.select(['apples', 'oranges', 'bananas'])
1) apples
2) oranges
3) bananas
#? 2
Out[2]: 'oranges'

But can also be used as a Python module, when scripting::

$ python -m pyselect $(ls)
1) LICENSE.txt
2) build/
3) dist/
4) pyselect.egg-info/
5) pyselect.py
6) pyselect.pyc
7) setup.py
8) test.py
#? 4
pyselect.egg-info/

Or in a Bash pipe::

$ ls | xargs python -m pyselect
1) LICENSE.txt
2) build/
3) dist/
4) pyselect.egg-info/
5) pyselect.py
6) pyselect.pyc
7) setup.py
8) test.py
#? 5
pyselect.py

============
Installation
============

Pyselect is available on Pypi::

$ pip install pyselect

License
