static bool CLIProcessor::argsGetOption ( const QStringList &  argList,
QString  shortOpt,
QString  longOpt 
)
static
Parameters
argLista list of strings, think argv
shortOpta short-form option string, e.g, "-h"
longOpta long-form option string, e.g. "--help"
Returns
true if the option exists in args before any element which is "--"
static QVariant CLIProcessor::argsGetOptionWithArg ( const QStringList &  argList,
QString  shortOpt,
QString  longOpt,
QVariant  defaultValue 
)
static

Given a list of strings, this function will extract the argument of type T to an option, where the option in an element which matches either the short or long forms, and the argument to that option is the following element in the list, e.g. ("--option", "arg"). It is also possible to extract argument to options which are part of the option element, separated by the "=" character, e.g. ( "--option=arg" ). Type conversion is done using the QTextStream class, and as such possible types which this template function may use are restricted to those where there is a value operator<<() defined in the QTextStream class for that type. The argument list is only processed as far as the first value "--". If an argument "--" is to be retrieved, it must be apecified using the "--option=--" form.

Parameters
argLista list of strings, think argv.
shortOptthe short form of the option, e.g. "-n".
longOptthe long form of the option, e.g. "--number".
defaultValuethe default value to return if the option was not found in args.
Exceptions
runtime_error("no_optarg")the expected argument to the option was not found.
runtime_error("optarg_type")the expected argument to the option could not be converted.
Returns
The value of the argument to the specified option which occurs before the first element with the value "--". If the option is not found, defaultValue is returned.
static int CLIProcessor::argsGetYesNoOption ( const QStringList &  argList,
QString  shortOpt,
QString  longOpt,
int  defaultValue 
)
static

e.g. option –use-foo can have parameter "yes" or "no" It is also possible for the argument to take values, "1", "0"; "true", "false";

Parameters
argLista list of strings, think argv
shortOpta short-form option string, e.g, "-h"
longOpta long-form option string, e.g. "--help"
defaultValuethe default value to return if the option was not found in args.
Exceptions
runtime_error("no_optarg")the expected argument to the option was not found. The longOpt value is appended in parenthesis.
runtime_error("optarg_type")the expected argument to the option could not be converted. The longOpt value is appended in parenthesis.
Returns
1 if the argument to the specified opion is "yes", "y", "true", "on" or 1; 0 if the argument to the specified opion is "no", "n", "false", "off" or 0; the value of the defaultValue parameter if the option was not found in the argument list before an element which has the value "--".
static void CLIProcessor::parseCLIArgsPostConfig ( const QStringList &  argList,
QSettings *  conf 
)
static

This gives us the chance to over-ride settings which are in the configuration file.

static void CLIProcessor::parseCLIArgsPreConfig ( const QStringList &  argList)
static

This includes the chance to set the configuration file name. It is to be done in the sub-class of the StelApp, as the sub-class may want to manage the argument list, as is the case with the StelMainWindow version.
