Command Line Interface

Warden comes with a command line interface (CLI) that you can use to configure it from the command line.

• Option values should be set using the equal sign (=).
• If an option value has spaces or semicolons then the value should be wrapped in single quotes.
• If an option value needs single quotes then the value should be wrapped in single quotes with value single quotes properly escaped replacing a single quote with '\''
• Options are case sensitive.
