NotifyOption.java

package gnu.dtools.ritopt;

/**
 * The NotifyOption class is used to register options that when invoked
 * notify a listener. This provides an interface for event-driven
 * options processing. In order for a class to be notified, it must implement
 * the OptionListener interface.<p>
 *
 * When the option is invoked, the corresponding short, long, and option
 * values are put in an OptionEvent object, and passed to all registered
 * listeners.<p>
 *
 * A class must implement the OptionListener interface in order to receive
 * notification of option events.<p>
 *
 * For a more detailed explanation please refer to the tutorial. The following
 * is a simple example of how a NotifyOption is used.
 * <pre>
 *
 * import gnu.dtools.ritopt.*;
 *
 * public class TellMe implements OptionListener {
 *
 *    public static void main( String args[] ) {
 *       TellMe m = new TellMe();
 *       Options processor = new Options();
 *       NotifyOption say = new NotifyOption( m );
 *       processor.register( "say", 's', say );
 *       processor.process();
 *    }
 *
 *    public void optionInvoked( OptionEvent e ) {
 *       if ( e.getCommand().equals( "say" ) ) {
 *           String say = e.getValue();
 *           if ( Utility.trim( say ).length() == 0 ) say = "nothing";
 *           System.err.println( "You told me to say " + nothing + "." );
 *       }
 *    }
 * }
