Spec URL:


Description: A drop-in replacement for Python's cmd which 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
 * accepts abbreviated commands when unambiguous
 * py enters interactive Python console

Comment 1 Silas Sewell 2009-04-11 22:05:07 UTC
After reviewing this package I found some errors which need to be addressed before it should be included in Fedora.

Sorry for the noise.

Comment 2 Simon 2009-04-11 22:14:35 UTC
please reopen it if you fixed these.

Comment 3 Silas Sewell 2009-04-11 22:56:36 UTC
Finally figured it out, dependency bug filed.

Comment 4 Simon 2009-04-12 07:14:14 UTC
k, i will review it after pyparsing 1.5.1 is available for rawhide!

Comment 5 Silas Sewell 2009-06-10 06:00:18 UTC
I've decided to use python-cly and I'm not interested in pursuing this package.

I'll keep the SRPM/SPEC available if anyone would like to take it over.
