NAME aegis project attributes - modify the attributes of a project
SYNOPSIS aegis -Project_Attributes attr-file [ option... ] aegis -Project_Attributes -Edit [ option... ] aegis -Project_Attributes -List [ option... ] aegis -Project_Attributes -Help
DESCRIPTION The aegis -Project_Attributes command is used to set, edit or list the attributes of a project. The output of the -List variant is suitable for use as input at a later time. See aepattr(5) for a description of the file format.
OPTIONS The following options are understood: -Edit Edit the attributes with a text editor, this is usually more convenient than sup‐ plying a text file. The VISUAL and then EDITOR environment variables are con‐ sulted for the name of the editor to use; defaults to vi(1) if neither is set. See the visual_command and editor_command fields in aeuconf(1) for how to over‐ ride this specifically for Aegis. Warning: Aegis tries to be well behaved when faced with errors, so the temporary file is left in your home directory where you can edit it further and re-use it with a -file option. The -edit option may not be used in the background, or when the standard input is not a terminal. -Edit_BackGround Edit the attributes with a dumb text editor, this is most often desired when edit commands are being piped into the editor via the standard input. Only the EDITOR environment variable is consulted for the name of the editor to use; it is a fatal error if it is not set. See the editor_command field in aeuconf(1) for how to override this specifically for Aegis. -File filename Take the attributes from the specified file. The filename `-' is understood to mean the standard input. -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 environment 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 single project, the project name defaults to that project. Otherwise, it is an error. -Descend_Project_Tree This option may be used to request that the command should be applied to the project and all its branches and sub-branches. -TERse This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare minimum of informa‐ tion. It is usually useful for shell scripts. -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. Defaults 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_prefer‐ ence 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 optional. 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 com‐ bination of both, case is not important. For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all interpreted 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 "--option=value" convention is also understood.
ERRORS It is an error if the current user is not an administrator of the specified project.
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 errors.
ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See aep‐ conf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set envi‐ ronment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
