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

NAME
	aegis delta name - assign a symbolic name to a project delta

SYNOPSIS
	aegis -DELta_NAme [ option...  ] name
	aegis -Help
	aegis -VERSion

DESCRIPTION
	The aegis -DELta_NAme command is used to add a symbolic	name to	a
	project	delta.	This is	so that	this name may be used, rather than the
	number,	when extracting	previous versions of the file using the
	aecp(1)	command.

	The -DELta number option on the	command	line specifies a delta number
	of the project.	 That is, it is	the delta number assigned to an	inte-
	gration.  Delta	names may only be applied to project baselines.	 If no
	delta number is	given on the command line, the current baseline	is the
	default.

	A name must be given on	the command line.  This	is the name which will
	be assigned to the delta.  If the name has already been	used, you will
	be given a fatal error message.	 If you	also specify the -OverWriting
	option the name	will be	removed	from its previous delta	and assigned
	to the requested delta.

OPTIONS
	The following options are understood:

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

	-DELta number
		This option may	be used	to specify a particular	delta in the
		project's history to name.

	-DELta_DAte string
		This option may	be used	to specify a particular	date and time
		in the project's history.

	-Delta_From_Change number
		This option may	be used	to specify a particular	delta in the
		project's history, based on when the given change was success-
		fully integrated.

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

	-OverWriting
		This option may	be used	to force overwriting of	files.	The
		default	action is to give an error if an existing file would
		be overwritten.

	-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.

	-Wait	This option may	be used	to require Aegis commands to wait for
		access locks, if they cannot be	obtained immediately.  De-
		faults to the user's lock_wait_preference if not specified,
		see aeuconf(5) for more	information.

	-No_Wait
		This option may	be used	to require Aegis commands to emit a
		fatal error if access locks cannot be obtained immediately.
		Defaults to the	user's lock_wait_preference if not specified,
		see aeuconf(5) for more	information.

	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.

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.
