Attributes
[R] atype

Map from acceptable argument types to pattern and converter pairs.

[R] list

List of all switches and summary string.

[R] long

Map from long style option switches to actual switch objects.

[R] short

Map from short style option switches to actual switch objects.

Class Public methods
new()

Just initializes all instance variables.

# File lib/optparse.rb, line 742
def initialize
  @atype = {}
  @short = OptionMap.new
  @long = OptionMap.new
  @list = []
end
Instance Public methods
accept(t, pat = /.*/m, &block)
# File lib/optparse.rb, line 752
def accept(t, pat = /.*/m, &block)
  if pat
    pat.respond_to?(:match) or
      raise TypeError, "has no `match'", ParseError.filter_backtrace(caller(2))
  else
    pat = t if t.respond_to?(:match)
  end
  unless block
    block = pat.method(:convert).to_proc if pat.respond_to?(:convert)
  end
  @atype[t] = [pat, block]
end
append(*args)

Appends switch at the tail of the list, and associates short, long and negated long options. Arguments are:

switch

OptionParser::Switch instance to be inserted.

short_opts

List of short style options.

long_opts

List of long style options.

nolong_opts

List of long style options with “no-” prefix.

append(switch, short_opts, long_opts, nolong_opts)
# File lib/optparse.rb, line 816
def append(*args)
  update(*args)
  @list.push(args[0])
end
complete(id, opt, icase = false, *pat, &block)

Searches list id for opt and the optional patterns for completion pat. If icase is true, the search is case insensitive. The result is returned or yielded if a block is given. If it isn't found, nil is returned.

# File lib/optparse.rb, line 838
def complete(id, opt, icase = false, *pat, &block)
  __send__(id).complete(opt, icase, *pat, &block)
end
each_option(&block)

Iterates over each option, passing the option to the block.

# File lib/optparse.rb, line 845
def each_option(&block)
  list.each(&block)
end
prepend(*args)

Inserts switch at the head of the list, and associates short, long and negated long options. Arguments are:

switch

OptionParser::Switch instance to be inserted.

short_opts

List of short style options.

long_opts

List of long style options.

nolong_opts

List of long style options with “no-” prefix.

prepend(switch, short_opts, long_opts, nolong_opts)
# File lib/optparse.rb, line 800
def prepend(*args)
  update(*args)
  @list.unshift(args[0])
end
reject(t)
# File lib/optparse.rb, line 768
def reject(t)
  @atype.delete(t)
end

Searches key in id list. The result is returned or yielded if a block is given. If it isn't found, nil is returned.

# File lib/optparse.rb, line 825
def search(id, key)
  if list = __send__(id)
    val = list.fetch(key) {return nil}
    block_given? ? yield(val) : val
  end
end
summarize(*args, &block)

Creates the summary table, passing each line to the block (without newline). The arguments args are passed along to the summarize method which is called on every option.

# File lib/optparse.rb, line 854
def summarize(*args, &block)
  sum = []
  list.reverse_each do |opt|
    if opt.respond_to?(:summarize) # perhaps OptionParser::Switch
      s = []
      opt.summarize(*args) {|l| s << l}
      sum.concat(s.reverse)
    elsif !opt or opt.empty?
      sum << ""
    elsif opt.respond_to?(:each_line)
      sum.concat([*opt.each_line].reverse)
    else
      sum.concat([*opt.each].reverse)
    end
  end
  sum.reverse_each(&block)
end
