cmd2 is an extension to the Standard Library's cmd module.  It can be
used as a drop-in replacement for cmd, providing new functionality for
command-prompt applications without requiring rewriting.

    * Load commands from file, save to file, edit commands in file
    * Multi-line commands
    * Case-insensitive commands

    * Parsing commands with flags
