      • parseArgs

        public java.util.List<Operand<java.lang.Boolean>> parseArgs​(java.lang.String[] aArgs)
                                                             throws UnknownArgsException,
                                                                    AmbiguousArgsException,
                                                                    ParseArgsException
        Parses the provided command line arguments and determines the according values by evaluating this Syntaxable instance or, in case of being a node in the syntax tree (such as a Condition, traversing the child Syntaxable instances' Syntaxable.parseArgs(String[]) methods. In case of successfully parsing this Syntaxable and / or the child Syntaxable instances, the evaluated command line arguments are returned: Depending on the Syntaxable subclasses representing the evaluated command line arguments, instances of Flag classes, Option classes or Operand classes may be found in the result. In case of parsing failure, an according exception is thrown. ATTENTION: This method does not test for superfluous command line arguments being passed; e.g. command line arguments not being evaluated by any of the Syntaxable instance being traversed. This method is commonly used by a root Syntaxable's ArgsParser.evalArgs(String[]) method, which delegates to the Syntaxable.parseArgs(String[]) method and after which it determines whether there are superfluous arguments to be taken care of (by throwing an according exception). Business logic therefore should invoke the root node's Syntaxable.parseArgs(String[]) method as ignoring superfluous command line arguments will cause unexpected behavior from the point of view of the invoker.
        Specified by:
        parseArgs in interface Syntaxable
        Overrides:
        parseArgs in class AbstractOption<java.lang.Boolean>
        Parameters:
        aArgs - The command line arguments to be parsed.
        Returns:
        The list of evaluated command line arguments being instances of the Operand interfaces or its sub-types.
        Throws:
        UnknownArgsException - Thrown in case not one command line argument matched regarding the provided args vs. the expected args.
        AmbiguousArgsException - Thrown in case at least one command line argument is ambiguous regarding expected args vs. provided args.
        ParseArgsException - Thrown in case the provided command line arguments do not respect the required syntax or cannot be converted to the required type
      • reset

        public void reset​()
        Specified by:
        reset in interface org.refcodes.component.Resetable
        Overrides:
        reset in class AbstractOperand<java.lang.Boolean>
      • toValue

        protected java.lang.Boolean toValue​(java.lang.String aArg)
                                     throws ParseArgsException
        Double dispatch hook to be implemented by subclasses of the AbstractOperand for converting a command line argument to the required Operand's type. In case conversion failed, then an according exception is to be thrown.
        Specified by:
        toValue in class AbstractOperand<java.lang.Boolean>
        Parameters:
        aArg - The command line argument to be converted to an instance of the given type T.
        Returns:
        An instance of type T from the provided command line argument.
        Throws:
        ParseArgsException - Thrown in case the provided command line arguments do not respect the required syntax or cannot be converted to the required type.
      • toUsage

        public java.lang.String toUsage​(SyntaxNotation aSyntaxNotation)
        Description copied from interface: SyntaxUsage
        Returns the human readable (verbose) syntax of implementing class ATTENTION: As of different parenthesis settings for some notations regarding the root Syntaxable and the child Syntaxables, the method Syntaxable.toSyntax(SyntaxNotation) is called from inside a Syntaxable hierarchy. In case the syntax is to be retrieved from the root Syntaxable or an encapsulating and different type, then the applicable method to be called is SyntaxUsage.toUsage(SyntaxNotation), as for some notations it will for example not create the most outer braces.
        Specified by:
        toUsage in interface SyntaxUsage
        Parameters:
        aSyntaxNotation - The syntax notation used for generating the command line arguments syntax.
        Returns:
        The human readable (verbose) command line arguments syntax.
