5.10 cmd -- Support for line-oriented command interpreters

The Cmd class provides a simple framework for writing line-oriented command interpreters. These are often useful for test harnesses, administrative tools, and prototypes that will later be wrapped in a more sophisticated interface.

Cmd ()
A Cmd instance or subclass instance is a line-oriented interpreter framework. There is no good reason to instantiate Cmd itself; rather, it's useful as a superclass of an interpreter class you define yourself in order to inherit Cmd's methods and encapsulate action methods.
