Amazon CLI


8/5/06 - Added a new 'debug' command that allows the user to view the underlying XML. I figured this would be useful for people learning how to develop their own websites using Amazon ECommerce Webservices. Simply visit the Amazon CLI page and try out your regular command line query (e.g: "search -i Music -artist floyd"), then toggle on debug/god mode and retry the same query again. This time around you should be able to see the exact REST request that was made and also the XML retrieved -- hope it helps better understand and analyze the XML structure and allows for more rapid prototyping and mashups...

8/23/06 - Added auto-completion for commands in order to aid new users, and also further exploration of rarer search indices and so on. The feature is relatively self-explanatory, just start typing and a drop down list of choices appears. Highlight the word you want to use and press 'TAB' to auto-complete. Note: The Up/Down arrow keys can no longer be used for command history, use PageUp/PageDown to scroll through history instead.

TODO: Add docs for CLI history.
