func Errorf Uses

func Errorf(format string, args ...interface{})

Errorf prints to Stderr, regardless of FlagVerbose.

func Logf Uses

func Logf(format string, v ...interface{})

Logf logs to Stderr if FlagVerbose, and is silent otherwise.

func Main Uses

func Main()

Main is meant to be the core of a command that has subcommands (modes), such as pk-put or pk.

func PrintLicenses Uses

func PrintLicenses()

PrintLicenses prints all the licences registered by for this program.

func Printf Uses

func Printf(format string, args ...interface{})

Printf prints to Stderr if FlagVerbose, and is silent otherwise.

func RegisterCommand Uses

func RegisterCommand(mode string, makeCmd func(Flags *flag.FlagSet) CommandRunner)

RegisterCommand adds a mode to the list of modes for the main command, and also specifies that this mode is just another executable that runs as a new cmdmain command. The executable to run is determined by the LookPath implementation for this mode.

func RegisterMode Uses

func RegisterMode(mode string, makeCmd func(Flags *flag.FlagSet) CommandRunner)

RegisterMode adds a mode to the list of modes for the main command. It is meant to be called in init() for each subcommand.

type CommandRunner Uses

type CommandRunner interface {
    RunCommand(args []string) error

CommandRunner is the type that a command mode should implement.

type Demoter Uses

type Demoter interface {
    Demote() bool

Demoter is an interface that boring commands can implement to demote themselves in the tool listing, for boring or low-level subcommands. They only show up in --help mode.

type ExecRunner Uses

type ExecRunner interface {
    LookPath() (string, error)

ExecRunner is the type that a command mode should implement when that mode just calls a new executable that will run as a new command.

type UsageError Uses

type UsageError string

func (UsageError) Error Uses

func (ue UsageError) Error() string
