Scala example source code file (ManMaker.scala)

This example Scala source code file (ManMaker.scala) is included in my "Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you more easily find Scala source code examples by using tags.

All credit for the original source code belongs to; I'm just trying to make examples easier to find. (For my Scala work, see my Scala examples and tutorials.)

Scala tags/keywords

attribute, file, fileoutputstream, list, manmaker, nil, none, option, some, task

import{File, FileOutputStream}

class ManMaker extends Task {

  /** The command for which to generate the man page */
  private var command: List[String] = Nil

  /** The directory to put html pages in */
  private var htmlout: Option[File] = None

  /** The directory to put man pags in */
  private var manout: Option[File] = None

  def setCommand(input: String) {
    command = input.split(",").toList.flatMap { s =>
      val st = s.trim()
      if (st != "") List(st) else Nil

  def setHtmlout(input: File) {
    htmlout = Some(input)

  def setManout(input: File) {
    manout = Some(input)

  override def execute() {
    if (command.isEmpty) sys.error("Attribute 'command' is not set.")
    if (htmlout.isEmpty) sys.error("Attribute 'htmlout' is not set.")
    if (manout.isEmpty) sys.error("Attribute 'manout' is not set.")

    command foreach (cmd => {
      val classname = "scala.man1."+ cmd

      val htmlFileName = htmlout.get.getPath + File.separator +
                         cmd + ".html"
      val htmlFile = new
      EmitHtml.emitHtml(classname, htmlFile)

      val manFileName = manout.get.getPath + File.separator +
                        "man1" + File.separator + cmd + ".1"
      val manFile = new FileOutputStream(manFileName)
      EmitManPage.emitManPage(classname, manFile)
