Ocular Interpreter

The Ocular shell can be used as a script interpreter, that is, in non-interactive mode.

Basic Usage

Ocular can be used in non-interactive mode. You would execute commands and operations via a script that you specify as an argument instead of manually typing them after the Ocular prompt. Ocular runs the commands in your script and exits when done.

For example, let's say you have a file named test.sc with the following contents:

@main def exec(cpgFile: String, outFile: String) = {
importCpg(cpgFile)
cpg.namespace.name.l |> outFile
}

You can include Scala code in test.sc and use the |> operator to pipe output into files. The script is then run as follows:

sl ocular -- --script test.sc --params cpgFile=/src.path.zip,outFile=output.log

Importing Additional Scripts

If your script depends on code from one or more additional scripts, you can use the --import parameter, which accepts a comma-separated list of input scripts:

sl ocular -- --script test.sc --params cpgFile=/src.path.zip,outFile=output.log --import scripts/hello.sc
