Subject [EXEC] Suggestion for CommandLine
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2008 09:47:12 GMT
Hi

I hope this is the correct place for suggestions to Commons Exec.


CommandLine

Many command line arguments come in pairs, at the moment I have to call addArgument() twice
for each
component in the paired argument, which is slightly messy + could lead to problems if one
of the
pair is commented out later.

Suggestion
Add a 2 arg addArgument method for adding 2 command line arguments in one.
(or perhaps use varargs?)


example :-
Before
        CommandLine userAddCL = new CommandLine("useradd");
        userAddCL.addArgument("-g");
        userAddCL.addArgument("tomcat");
        userAddCL.addArgument(username);

After
        CommandLine userAddCL = new CommandLine("useradd");
        userAddCL.addArgument("-g", "tomcat");
        userAddCL.addArgument(username);




Peter Henderson.
