[ptr] native nsArgvArray(const char* const);
* Extension of nsICommandLine that allows for initialization of new command lines
* and running the command line actions by processing the command line handlers.
* @status INTERNAL - This interface is not meant for use by embedders, and is
* not intended to be frozen. If you are an embedder and need
* functionality provided by this interface, talk to Benjamin
* Smedberg <>.
interface nsICommandLineRunner : nsICommandLine
* This method assumes a native character set, and is meant to be called
* with the argc/argv passed to main(). Talk to bsmedberg if you need to
* create a command line using other data. argv will not be altered in any
* way.
* On Windows, the "native" character set is UTF-8, not the native codepage.
* @param workingDir The working directory for resolving file and URI paths.
* Can be null, in which case resolving files will not
* work, and only absolute URIs will be resolvable.
* @param state The nsICommandLine.state flag.
void init(in long argc, in nsArgvArray argv,
in nsIFile workingDir, in unsigned long state);
* Process the command-line handlers in the proper order, calling "handle()" on
* each.
* @throws NS_ERROR_ABORT if any handler throws NS_ERROR_ABORT. All other errors
* thrown by handlers will be silently ignored.
void run();
* Process and combine the help text provided by each command-line handler.
