 % gen-rand-table aoaos [--format=name] [--json] [--(no)naked-res] [--page-result[=program]] [--view-result[=program]] [num_rows] [num_columns]
 % gen-rand-table aohos [--format=name] [--json] [--(no)naked-res] [--page-result[=program]] [--view-result[=program]] [num_rows] [num_columns]

SUBCOMMANDS

OPTIONS

* marks required options.

Common options

--format=s

Choose output format, e.g. json, text.

Default value:

 undef
--help, -h, -?

Display help message and exit.

--json

Set output format to json.

--naked-res

When outputing as JSON, strip result envelope.

Default value:

 0

By default, when outputing as JSON, the full enveloped result is returned, e.g.:

    [200,"OK",[1,2,3],{"func.extra"=>4}]

The reason is so you can get the status (1st element), status message (2nd element) as well as result metadata/extra result (4th element) instead of just the result (3rd element). However, sometimes you want just the result, e.g. when you want to pipe the result for more post-processing. In this case you can use `--naked-res` so you just get:

    [1,2,3]
--page-result

Filter output through a pager.

--subcommands

List available subcommands.

--version, -v

Display program's version and exit.

--view-result

View output using a viewer.

--num-columns=s, -c

COMPLETION

This script has shell tab completion capability with support for several shells.

bash

To activate bash completion for this script, put:

 complete -C gen-rand-table gen-rand-table

in your bash startup (e.g. ~/.bashrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.

It is recommended, however, that you install modules using cpanm-shcompgen which can activate shell completion for scripts immediately.

in your tcsh startup (e.g. ~/.tcshrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.

It is also recommended to install shcompgen (see above).
