Hi dear Apache commons-cli lover,
You know certainly how to parse a list of arguments into options.
But possibly you may want to provide the same as a pure JVM method ; what about the :
callWith(String theArgs) ?
Might sound impossible with a commons-cli library.
You probably have thought about splitting around whitespace tokens, but you forgot that arguments can contain whitespaces characters themselves.
Then how to achieve the parsing from a simple text ?
My solution is to build a powerful regex, using an online IDE called regex101.https://regex101.com/r/B5Rga8/16/tests
An argument can be this, “that”, ‘that’, ‘or ”even” that’. Use the regex here from the hyperlink into your code to build a list of arguments from a plain text command line.
