NAME
	aegis make transparent - make branch file transparent

SYNOPSIS
	aegis -Make_Transparent	[ option...  ] filename...
	aegis -List [ option...	 ]
	aegis -Help
	aegis -VERSion

DESCRIPTION
	The aegis -Make_Transparent command is used to add a file to the
	change which will result in the	named file being made transparent in
	the branch when	the change is integrated.  The version of the project
	file from the deeper branch will then show through.

	You may	name a directory to make all files in that directory tree
	transparent.  It is an error if	there are no relevant files.

   Branch vs Change
	The aecpu(1) command may only be applied to a change.  If you wish to
	perform	the same operation on a	branch,	use the	aemt(1)	command,
	through	the agency of a	change.

   File	Name Interpretation
	The aegis program will attempt to determine the	project	file names
	from the file names given on the command line.	All file names are
	stored within aegis projects as	relative to the	root of	the baseline
	directory tree.	 The development directory and the integration direc-
	tory are shadows of this baseline directory, and so these relative
	names apply here, too.	Files named on the command line	are first con-
	verted to absolute paths if necessary.	They are then compared with
	the baseline path, the development directory path, and the integration
	directory path,	to determine a baseline-relative name.	It is an error
	if the file named is outside one of these directory trees.

	The -BAse_RElative option may be used to cause relative	filenames to
	be interpreted as relative to the baseline path; absolute filenames
	will still be compared with the	various	paths in order to determine a
	baseline-relative name.

	The relative_filename_preference in the	user configuration file	may be
	used to	modify this default behavior.  See aeuconf(5) for more infor-
	mation.

   Process Side	Effects
	This command will cancel any build or test registrations, because
	changing the change file list logically	invalidates them.

   Notification
	The make_transparent_command in	the project configuration file is run,
	if set.	 The project_file_command is also run, if set, and if there
	has been an integration	recently.  See aepconf(5) for more informa-
	tion.

OPTIONS
	The following options are understood:

	-BAse_RElative
		This option may	be used	to cause relative filenames to be con-
		sidered	relative to the	base of	the source tree.  See aeu-
		conf(5)	for the	corresponding user preference.

	-CUrrent_RElative
		This option may	be used	to cause relative filenames to be con-
		sidered	relative to the	current	directory.  This is usually
		the default.  See aeuconf(5) for the corresponding user	pref-
		erence.

	-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.

	-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.

	-UNChanged
		Examine	the named files	to see if they are unchanged.  Only
		remove the unchanged files from	the branch, and	leave the
		files which have changed.  If no files are named on the	com-
		mand line all branch files are checked.

	-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.

	-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.

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

	This command is	dedicated to my	wife, Mary-Therese.  When I was	trying
	to explain what	this command did, she said "I had one of those on my
	bicycle	when I was young, but it fell off".

ERRORS
	It is an error if the change is	not in the being developed state.
	It is an error if the change is	not assigned to	the current user.
	It is an error if the file is not present in the immediate branch.
	It is an error if the file is present in the immediate branch, but is
	not also present in a deeper branch.
	It is an error if the file is only present in the trunk	branch.

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.
