Command line fun in CakePHP 1.2

On his ThinkingPHP blog today, Felix Geisendorfer hands out mor eCakePHP goodness with some talk about working with the popular CakePHP framework in an unlikely place - on the command line with the "bake" utility.

The "bake" utility is included with the CakePHP distribution and helps a developer scaffold out an application with minimal effort. Things have been changed in the recent distributions, though:

Unlike the old bake.php, which was only used to auto-generate code for you, this one follows a much cooler concept. The main idea is to have an interface to a wide variety Tasks.

The new and improved "bake" program takes the tasks created and builds out a bit more functionality than just the scaffolding as the version before did. Felix includes an example of a task (a simple echo) just to show how it's formatted.
