bk upgrade(7.3.3)	    BitKeeper User's Manual	     bk	upgrade(7.3.3)

NAME
       bk upgrade - upgrade to,	or check for, new versions of BitKeeper

SYNOPSIS
       bk upgrade [-cdfq] [-a[arch]] [srcurl]

DESCRIPTION
       The  bk	upgrade	command	contacts BitKeeper's servers using HTTP	to see
       if new versions of BitKeeper are	available for download.	 If a new ver-
       sion  is	 found	for  this  platform,  then the image is	downloaded and
       installed, unless instructed otherwise with the options below.

OPTIONS
       -a[arch]	  Requests an installer	image  for  another  architecture  and
		  reports  the newest available	version.  Usually used with -d
		  to download a	BitKeeper installer for	another	platform.   If
		  -d  is not set then -c is implied.  Omit the architecture to
		  request a list of all	supported platforms.
       -c	  Just check to	see if a new version  BitKeeper	 is  available
		  for this platform but	do not download	and install it.
       -d	  Download  the	 installer for a new version of	BitKeeper, but
		  do not install it.
       -f	  If the bk upgrade command is unable to determine if the cur-
		  rently installed version of BitKeeper	has been replaced by a
		  newly	released version, then an warning message  is  printed
		  and the upgrade is aborted.  The -f option allow the user to
		  force	the new	version	to be used.
       -q	  This causes the upgrade program  to  suppress	 extra	output
		  when running.

EXAMPLES
       To check	for new	upgrades:

	   bk upgrade -c

       To install a new	version	of bk:

	   bk upgrade

       To upgrade a given installation of bk on	this machine:

	   /home/user/bitkeeper/bk upgrade

       To download the latest installer	regardless of what you have installed:

	   bk upgrade -df

       To download the latest installer	for Windows:

	   bk upgrade -df -ax86-win32

NOTES
       The  default  URL  that BitKeeper uses to search	for new	updates	can be
       overridden with the upgrade_url config option.  This  will  usually  be
       used  in	a corporate environment	to prevent users from using a new ver-
       sion of BitKeeper that has  not	been  certified	 locally.  Usually  an
       internal	 URL  will  be	put  in	a config file in the BitKeeper install
       directory.

       To populate the local copy of the binaries you will need	 to  wget  the
       directory  of binaries from bitkeeper.com; the images are encrypted and
       bk upgrade expects that and will	not work with un-encrypted images.

       To download the images run

	   wget	-r http://upgrades.bitkeeper.com/upgrades

EXIT STATUS
       0   if a	new version of BitKeeper is found
       1   if no updates are available
       2   if errors occurred downloading new updates
