aegis -Change_Directory(1)  General Commands Manual aegis -Change_Directory(1)



NAME
        aegis change directory - change directory

SYNOPSIS
        aegis -Change_Directory [ option...  ][ relative‐path ]
        aegis -Change_Directory -List [ option...  ]
        aegis -Change_Directory -Help

DESCRIPTION
        The aegis -Change_Directory command is used to obtain a path to change
        directory to.  If the relative‐path is supplied, this will be added to
        the output.

        This command is usually used to calculate an argument for cd(1),
        however it can also be used to obtain an absolute path for change and
        project files.

OPTIONS
        The following options are understood:

        -BaseLine
                This option may be used to specify that the project baseline
                is the subject of the command.

        -BRanch number
                This option may be used to specify a different branch for the
                origin file, rather than the baseline.  (See also -TRunk
                option.  Please Note: the -BRanch option does not take a
                project name, just the branch number suffix.

        -GrandParent
                This option may be used to specify the grandparent branch (one
                up from the current branch) for the origin file, rather than
                the baseline.  (The -grandparent option is the same as the
                “-branch ..” option.)

        -Change number
                This option may be used to specify a particular change within
                a project.  See aegis(1) for a complete description of this
                option.

        -Development_Directory
                This option is used to specify that the development directory
                is the subject of the command.  This is only useful for a
                change which is in the being integrated state, when the
                default is the integration directory.

        -Help
                This option may be used to obtain more information about how
                to use the aegis program.

        -List
                This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects
                for this command.  The list may be more general than expected.

        -Project name
                This option may be used to select the project of interest.
                When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT
                environment variable is consulted.  If that does not exist,
                the user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default
                project field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that
                does not exist, when the user is only working on changes
                within a single project, the project name defaults to that
                project.  Otherwise, it is an error.

        -TERse
                This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare
                minimum of information.  It is usually useful for shell
                scripts.

        -TRunk
                This option may be used to specify the project trunk for the
                origin file, rather than the baseline.  (See also -BRanch
                option, the -trunk option is the same as the “-branch -”
                option.)

        -Verbose
                This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output.
                By default aegis only produces output on errors.  When used
                with the -List option this option causes column headings to be
                added.

        See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

        All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the
        upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are
        optional.  You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

        All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
        lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

        For example: the arguments “-project”, “-PROJ” and “-p” are all
        interpreted to mean the -Project option.  The argument “-prj” will not
        be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not
        supplied.

        Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on
        the command line, after the function selectors.

        The GNU long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
        aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading '-'.  The
        “--option=value” convention is also understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS
        The recommended alias for this command is
        csh%    alias aecd 'cd `aegis -cd \!* -v`'
        sh$     aecd(){cd `aegis -cd "$@" -v`}

ERRORS
        It is an error if the specified change is not in a state where it has
        a directory to change to.

EXIT STATUS
        The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The
        aegis command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no
        errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
        See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this
        command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's
        project_specific field for how to set environment variables for all
        commands executed by Aegis.
