Module CommandExecution

Provides classes for modeling functions that execute new programs by interpreting string data as shell commands. To use this QL library, create a QL class extending CommandExecutionFunction with a characteristic predicate that selects the function or set of functions you are modeling. Within that class, override the hasCommandArgument predicate to indicate which parameters are interpreted as shell commands.
