This manual page documents briefly the boa-constructor command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. boa-constructor is an IDE and a RAD tool for creating cross-platform applications built on top of the Python language and the WxWindows GUI toolkit.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -O, --OverridePrefsDirName directory Specify a different directory to load preferences from. Default is $HOME/.boa-con‐ structor and is used if it exists. Directory will be created (and populated) if it does not exist. -C, --Constricted Run in constricted mode, overrides the preferences. -D, --Debug Run the first filename passed on the command-line in the Debugger on startup. -T, --Trace Run in trace mode. Used for tracking down core dumps. Every function call is logged to a file which can later be parsed for a traceback. -S, --StartupFile Execute the script pointed to by $BOASTARTUP or $PYTHONSTARTUP in the Shell names‐ pace. The Editor object is available as sys.boa_ide. Overrides the preferences. -B, --BlockHomePrefs Prevent the $HOME directory being used. -E, --EmptyEditor Don't open the files that were open last time Boa was closed. -R, --RemoteDebugServer Run the first filename passed on the command-line in a Remote Debugger Server that can be connected to over a socket. -h, --help Show summary of options. -v, --version Show version of program.
