cme - Check or edit configuration data

cme provides a command to check or edit configuration data with config-model.

cme and Config::Model are quite modular: the configuration data that you can edit depend on the other Config::Model distributions installed on your system.

For instance, to configure ssh client or sshd server, you need to install Config::Model::OpenSsh.

Then you can check your ssh configuration with this command:

 $ cme check ssh

and you can modify it with:

 $ cme edit ssh
