Module Topkg.OS.Cmd

module Cmd: sig .. end

Running commands.


Command existence

val exists : Topkg.Cmd.t -> bool Topkg.result

exists cmd is true if the executable of cmd can be found in the path and false otherwise.

val must_exist : Topkg.Cmd.t -> Topkg.Cmd.t Topkg.result

must_exist cmd is cmd if the executable of cmd can be found in the path and an error otherwise.

Running commands

val run : ?err:Topkg.fpath -> Topkg.Cmd.t -> unit Topkg.result

run cmd runs the command cmd. std{i,o,err} are connected to the invoking process' standard channels. If err is specified stderr is redirected to the given file (e.g. Topkg.OS.File.null).

val run_status : ?err:Topkg.fpath -> Topkg.Cmd.t -> [ `Exited of int ] Topkg.result

run_status cmd is like Topkg.OS.Cmd.run, but doesn't error on non-zero exit status.

Capturing standard output

type run_status = Topkg.Cmd.t * [ `Exited of int ] 

The type for run statuses, the command that was run and the run status.

val success : ('a * run_status) Topkg.result -> 'a Topkg.result

success r is:

type run_out 

The type for representing the standard output of a command run.

val out_string : ?trim:bool ->
run_out -> (string * run_status) Topkg.result

out_string ~trim o captures the standard output o as a string. If trim is true (default) the result is passed through String.trim.

val out_lines : ?trim:bool ->
run_out -> (string list * run_status) Topkg.result

out_lines ~trim is like Topkg.OS.Cmd.out_string but the result is cut on newlines ('\n').

val out_file : Topkg.fpath ->
run_out -> (unit * run_status) Topkg.result

out_file f o writes the standard output o to file f.

val out_stdout : run_out -> (unit * run_status) Topkg.result

out_stdout o redirects the standard output o to the current process standard output.

val to_string : ?trim:bool -> run_out -> string Topkg.result

to_string is (out_string ?trim o |> success).

val to_lines : ?trim:bool -> run_out -> string list Topkg.result

to_lines ?trim o is (out_string ?trim o |> success).

val to_file : Topkg.fpath -> run_out -> unit Topkg.result

to_file f o is (out_file f o |> success)

val run_out : ?err:Topkg.fpath -> Topkg.Cmd.t -> run_out

run_out cmd represents the standard output of the command run cmd. std{i,err} are connected to the invoking prcoess stream and standard output can be consumed with Topkg.OS.Cmd.to_string, Topkg.OS.Cmd.to_lines or Topkg.OS.Cmd.to_file. If err is specified stderr is redirected to the given file.
