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), how-
	ever 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 op-
		tion.  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	de-
		fault 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	envi-
		ronment	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 sin-
		gle project, the project name defaults to that project.	 Oth-
		erwise,	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 op-
		tion, the -trunk option	is the same as the "-branch -" op-
		tion.)

	-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 op-
	tional.	 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	inter-
	preted 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	"--op-
	tion=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	er-
	rors.

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.
