aemeasure - simple file metrics
aemeasure [ infile [ outfile ]]
The aemeasure command is used to measure a few very simple file
statistics: lines of code, lines of comments, blank lines. It is an
example of a probgram which produces its output in the aemetrics(5)
format, suitable for Aegis to read and understand as file metrics.
The language of the file is determined by examining the file suffix.
.c, .h, .y C language
.cc, .CC, C++ language
.man, .mm, GNU Groff input
Aegis is capable of recording metrics as part of the file attributes of
a change. This allows various properties of files to be recorded for
later trend analysis, or other uses.
The specific metrics are not dictated by Aegis. It is expected that
the integration build will create a metrics file for each of the source
files the change. These metrics files must be in the format specified
The name of the metrics file defaults to “filename,S”, however it may
be varied, by setting the metrics_filename_pattern field of the project
config file. See aepconf(5) for more information.
If such a metrics file exists, for each source file in a change, it
will be read and remembered at integrate pass time. If it does not
exist, Aegis assumes there are no relevant metrics for that file, and
proceeds silently; it is not an error.
The following option is understood
This option may be used to specify the input language of the
file, rather than have the input language be guessed fromn the
file suffix. The name must be one of the following: C, C++,
roff or generic. Any other name will result in an error.
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
aemeasure are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’. The
"--option=value" convention is also understood.
The aemeasure command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The
aemeasure command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no
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.
