[5137] kea-shell removed ( is the right way to use it)

# First, let's import the right kea_connector.
# We have two versions: one for python 2.x and another for python 3.x.
# Sadly, there's no unified way to handle http connections. The recommended
# way is to use Requests (, but
# that's a stand alone package that requires separate installation. One of
# the design requirements was to not require any additional packages, so
# the code uses standard libraries available in python. Hence two versions.
import sys
if (sys.version_info[0] == 2):
# This is Python 2.x
import kea_connector2 as kea_connector
if (sys.version_info[0] == 3):
# This is Python 3.x
import kea_connector3 as kea_connector
# This is... have no idea what it is.

# Second step: Need to parse command line parameters. We will use argparse for
# that purpose. It does great job with having default values, taking care of
# the help and sanity checking input parameters.

help='Timeout (in milliseconds) when attempting to connect to CA')
parser.add_argument('command', type=str, nargs="?", default='list-commands',
help='command to be executed. If not specified, "list-commands" is used')
cmd_args = parser.parse_args()
# Ok, now time to put the parameters parsed into the structure to be used by the
# connection.
