	aemeasure - simple file	metrics

	aemeasure [ infile [ outfile ]]

	The aemeasure command is used to measure a few very simple file	sta-
	tistics: lines of code,	lines of comments, blank lines.	 It is an ex-
	ample of a probgram which produces its output in the aemetrics(5) for-
	mat, suitable for Aegis	to read	and understand as file metrics.

	The language of	the file is determined by examining the	file suffix.

		     .c, .h, .y	  C language
		     .cc, .CC,	  C++ language
		     .man, .mm,	  GNU Groff input
		     .ms, .so

	Aegis is capable of recording metrics as part of the file attributes
	of a change.  This allows various properties of	files to be recorded
	for later trend	analysis, or other uses.

	The specific metrics are not dictated by Aegis.	 It is expected	that
	the integration	build will create a metrics file for each of the
	source files the change.  These	metrics	files must be in the format
	specified by aemetrics(5).

	The name of the	metrics	file defaults to "filename,S", however it may
	be varied, by setting the metrics_filename_pattern field of the
	project	config file.  See aepconf(5) for more information.

	If such	a metrics file exists, for each	source file in a change, it
	will be	read and remembered at integrate pass time.  If	it does	not
	exist, Aegis assumes there are no relevant metrics for that file, and
	proceeds silently; it is not an	error.

	The following option is	understood

	-LANGuage name
		This option may	be used	to specify the input language of the
		file, rather than have the input language be guessed fromn the
		file suffix.  The name must be one of the following: C,	C++,
		roff or	generic.  Any other name will result in	an error.

	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
	aemeasure are long, this means ignoring	the extra leading '-'.	The
	"--option=value" convention is also understood.

	The aemeasure command will exit	with a status of 1 on any error.  The
	aemeasure command will only exit with a	status of 0 if there are no

	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.
