hconsole - Interactive Python console for using Hataris remote API
Hconsole is a Python script that invokes Hatari and then provides an interactive
shell (with full readline editing capabilities) for executing Hatari
remote API commands.
It can be useful for first exploring Hataris remote API usage
interactively and then writing scripts that somehow automate your
Hatari usage. They can invoke hconsole functionality simply by doing
"import hconsole" and calling appropriate methods (see example.py
coming with hconsole).
Normally hconsole forwards all of its arguments to Hatari instance
it invoked. If you want to give arguments for hconsole itself,
you need to add -- argument after the hconsole arguments
and before the arguments going to Hatari.
If you give a file name as hconsole argument, commands in it will
be read and executed through Hataris remote API before you get
into hconsole interactive shell.
Hconsole accepts following options:
Exit after starting Hatari and parsing arguments.
--help, -h ||
Show command line help.
Start Hatari with all of the given arguments:
hconsole.py --monitor mono -d test/
Start Hatari without extra arguments, execute commands from
the given commands.txt file, exit after the file ends:
hconsole.py commands.txt --exit --
By default hconsole and its examples are installed under
the /usr/local/share/hatari/hconsole/ directory.
