	aexml -	Aegis database to XML

	aexml [	option...  ] listname
	aexml -Help
	aexml -List
	aexml -VERSion

	The aexml command is used to extract portions of Aegis'	database in
	XML format.

   List	Names
	The following list names may be	given

		Internal change	file state.  See aefstate(5) for structure.

		Internal change	state.	See aecstate(5)	for structure.

		List of	projects.  See aegstate(5) for structure.

		Internal project change	state.	See aecstate(5)	for structure.

		The project configuration file.	 See aepconf(5)	for structure.

		Internal project file state.  See aefstate(5) for structure.

		Historical project file	state as it appeared immediately after
		the integrate pass of the specified change or delta.  See aef-
		state(5) for structure.

		Internal project state.	 See aepstate(5) for structure.

		User configuration file.  See aeuconf(5) for structure.

	The abbreviations foe the list names follows the same rules as for
	command	line options.

	The following options are understood:

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

		This option may	be used	to obtain more information about how
		to use the aexml program.

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

	-Output	filename
		This option may	be used	to specify the output file.  The out-
		put is sent to the standard output by default.

	-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.

		This option may	be used	to cause listings to produce the bare
		minimum	of information.	 It is usually useful for shell
		scripts.  If the file name ends	with ".gz" it will be com-
		pressed	with the gzip(1) algorithm, if it ends with ".bz" or
		".bz2" it will be compressed with the bzip2(1) algorithm.

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

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

	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.
