DESCRIPTION:

PathExpander helps pre-process command-line arguments expanding directories into their constituent files. It further helps by providing additional mechanisms to make specifying subsets easier with path subtraction and allowing for command-line arguments to be saved in a file.

NOTE: this is NOT an options processor. It is a path processor (basically everything else besides options). It does provide a mechanism for pre-filtering cmdline options, but not with the intent of actually processing them in PathExpander. Use OptionParser to deal with options either before or after passing ARGV through PathExpander.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

SYNOPSIS:

class MyPathExpander < PathExpander
  MY_GLOB = "**/*.rb"

  def initialize args = ARGV
    super args, MY_GLOB
  end
end

MyPathExpander.new(ARGV, my_glob).process.each do |f|
  # do something with each file
end
