Command Reference


Checks if file contains pattern

The contains command reads content of the specified file looking for any string that matches the specified pattern. If the file contains content matching the pattern the string "true" is printed otherwise "false". If the -failonfalse flag is set, then the command will exit with an error.

The contains command takes a -maxwait option that will wait that will cause the command to continuously retry the check until the maximum wait time has been exceeded.

static: This command can be run outside of an object context.
