Speak directly to your system. With its simple commands, flags, and parameters, a well-formed command-line application is the quickest way to automate a backup, a build, or a deployment and simplify your life.

As Ruby pro David Copeland explains, writing a command-line application that is self-documenting, robust, adaptable and forever useful is easier than you might think. Ruby is particularly suited to this task, since it combines high-level abstractions with close to the metal system interaction wrapped up in a concise, readable syntax. Moreover, Ruby has the support of a rich ecosystem of open-source tools and libraries.

Ten insightful chapters each explain and demonstrate a command-line best practice. Youll see how to use these tools to elevate the lowliest automation script to a maintainable, polished application.

You will learn how to use free, open source parsers to create user-friendly command-line interfaces as well as command suites. Youll see how to use defaults to keep options simple for everyday users, while giving advanced users options for more complex tasks.

Theres no reason a command-line application should lack documentation, whether its part of a help command or a man page; youll find out when and how to use both. Your journey from command-line novice to pro ends with a look at valuable approaches to testing your apps, and includes some fun techniques for outside-the-box, colorful interfaces that will delight your users.

With Ruby, the command line is not dead. Long live the command line.
