       aerptidx - report index file format




       The report index file is used to store pointers to report scripts, and
       descriptions of the reports.

       When searching for a report, the aer(1) command searches down the
       AEGIS_PATH looking for report.index files, and searching them for the
       report named.


       where = [{ ... }];
               This field is a table relating report name to file name.  The
               structure is as follows:

               name = string;
                       The name of a report.  The command line argument naming
                       scheme is used, to provide abbreviatable names.

               description = string;
                       A brief description of the report.  It should not be
                       very long, one or two lines at most.

               filename = string;
                       The name of the file containing the report script.  If
                       a relative path is given, it will be interpreted to be
                       relative to the directory containing the report.index
