Code Snippets

Several code snippets are provided to make working with Ookii.CommandLine even easier:

clargclass: Snippet for an argument class, including a static Create method that parses arguments.
clarg: Snippet for a command line argument.
clargpos: Snippet for a positional command line argument.
clargmulti: Snippet for a multi-value command line argument.
clargdict: Snippet for a dictionary command line argument.

All snippets are provided for C# and Visual Basic. To use them, either run the Install-Snippets.ps1 script with PowerShell, or manually copy the snippet files to the "Visual Studio <version>\Code Snippets\Visual C#\My Code Snippets" or "Visual Studio <version>\Code Snippets\Visual Basic\My Code Snippets" folder located in your My Documents folder. Alternatively, use the snippet manager inside Visual Studio to import the snippet files.

The Install-Snippets.ps1 script will install the snippets for Visual Studio 2005, Visual Studio 2008, Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 2012, if the snippet folders for those versions exist.

To uninstall, simply remove the files from those folders.

Snippets are not provided with the NuGet package; you must download the release from CodePlex to get them. Of course, you can use the download from CodePlex to get the snippets and then still use NuGet to add the library to your project.
