Web::MREST::CLI::Parser(3) Parser for demo MREST command line client


use Try::Tiny;

my $status;
my @tokens = split /\s+/, 'MY SAMPLE COMMAND';
try {
Web::MREST::CLI::Parse::parse_tokens( [], \@tokens );
} catch {
$status = $_;


The parsing of CLI commands takes place in the "parse_tokens" function, which calls itself recursively until it gets to a rather macabre-sounding

    die send_req . . .

This causes control to return to the while loop in "bin/mrest-cli" with the return value of the "send_req", which is a status object.

All tokens should be chosen to be distinguishable by their first three characters.
