DESCRIPTION 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.
OPTIONS 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.
SEE ALSO python(1). The program contains an integrated help and a little tutorial.
