Dispatching

We need to have a dispatch method to map our commands to our command handlers. This lives inside the plugin definition file: aresmush/plugins/cortex/cortex.rb.

The get_cmd_handler method performs the command dispatching:

def self.get_cmd_handler(client, cmd, enactor)
  case cmd.root
  when "attribute"
    if (cmd.switch_is?("set"))
      return AttributeSetCmd
    else
      return AttributesCmd
    end
  when "skill"
    if (cmd.switch_is?("set"))
      return SkillSetCmd
    else
      return SkillsCmd
    end
  ... etc
  end
  return nil
end
