Build Status

Convert a hash into command line arguments. The first argument is a hash of arguments that should be passed, along with corresponding value.

Optional (positional) arguments:

  1. The flag prefix to use (defaults to '--')
  2. The separator to use (defaults to '=')


$arguments = {
  'aString'   => 'words',
  'secure'    => true,
  'insecure'  => false,
  'array'     => ['item1', 'item2'],

# => --aString=words --secure --array=item1 --array=item2

command_args($arguments, '-')
# => -aString=words -secure -array=item1 -array=item2

command_args($arguments, '--', ' ')
# => --aString words --secure --array item1 --array item2
