aelpf - list project files
aelpf [ option... ]
The aelpf command is used to list the files which make up a project.
The file names are printed one per line on the output.
This is very similar to the aegis -l pf listing, but it only lists file
names, it lists no other attributes, and it is considerably faster.
If a change number is supplied on the command line, the files within
that change will be excluded from the listing. This allows build tools
to distinguish between change files which are changing, from project
files which are not, if they care.
If your filenames have newlines in them, you have a problem. You can
use any of the posix_filename_charset, dos_filename_required, windows_
filename_required, or shell_safe_filenames fields in your project
configuration file to prevent this. See aenf(1) and aepconf(5) for
The following options are understood:
This option may be used to specify which file actions you are
interested in. Valid values are "create", "modify", "remove",
etc, as may be observed in the Action column of the aegis -l pf
listing. The default is to list files with all actions except
removed files. You may use this option more than once.
This option may be used to exclude an action from the listing.
If no actions are explicitly included or excluded, the default
is to exclude removed files. You may use this option more than
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 aelpf program.
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.
This option may be used to specify which file usages you are
interested in. Valid values are "source", "test", etc, as may
be observed in the Usage column of the aegis -l pf listing.
The default is to list files with all usages. You may use this
option more than once.
This option may be used to exclude usages from the listing.
The default is to exclude no usages. You may use this option
more than once.
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 combination 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
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
aelpf are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’. The
"--option=value" convention is also understood.
The aelpf command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aelpf
command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.
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.
