Subject [jira] Created: (CLI-199) Improve HelpFormatter by making renderOptions() and renderWrappedText() public
Date Tue, 11 May 2010 05:37:35 GMT
Improve HelpFormatter by making renderOptions() and renderWrappedText() public
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CLI-199
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-199
             Project: Commons CLI
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: CLI-1.x
    Affects Versions: 1.2, 1.1, 1.3
            Reporter: gg
            Priority: Trivial


Under certain circumstances it is usefull that HelpFormatter printing methods return a string
buffer which can be used in further processing instead of direct printing to a PW or std.out.

When having a closer look at the source one can easily retrieve string buffers with formatted
text by changing the visibility of renderOptions() and renderWrappedText()  from protected
to public. This will make the "core" formatting methods available without adding additional
functionallity to the HelpFormatter.

Another option would be to add a set of print....() methods returning the SB instead of printing
its content.
