parse function Null safety

Future parse(
  1. CommandsPlugin commands,
  2. IChatContext context,
  3. StringView toParse,
  4. Type expectedType,
  5. {Converter? converterOverride}

Apply a converter to an input and return the result.

  • commands is the instance of CommandsPlugin used to retrieve the appropriate converter;
  • context is the context to parse arguments in;
  • toParse is the input to the converter;
  • expectedType is the type that should be returned from this function;
  • converterOverride can be specified to use that converter instead of querying commands for the converter to use.
