CommandLine parses the command line for a description of a
set of files and converts it into a list of individual files
CommandLine does nothing by itself. It is library code you
can incorporate into your own Java programs like this:
CommandLine wantedFiles = new CommandLine( args,
new AllDirectoriesFilter() /* which directories to include */,
new ExtensionListFilter( "java" ) /* which file extensions to include */);
// iterate through all the files in the collection.
for ( File file : wantedFiles )
System.err.println( file.getCanonicalPath() );
}// end for
On the command line, you can specify a list of individual
files, mixed with a list of directories.
If you use the -s switch in includes all the files in all
the recursive subdirectories.
Why that apple tree icon? It represents a tree of various
types of files, from which you pick some.
