mtnopt - generate shell variables from monotone workspace options
mtnopt [-s|-c|-v] [-d dir] [-k keys] mtnopt -h
mtnopt prints shell variable assignments for each value in the file of monotone workspace options, _MTN/options, in the current directory. For instance, if _MTN/options contained this text: database "/home/user/src/monotone.mtn" branch "net.venge.monotone" keydir "/home/user/.monotone/keys" mtnopt would print: MTN_database="/home/user/src/monotone.mtn"; MTN_branch="net.venge.monotone"; MTN_keydir="/home/user/.monotone/keys"; By default, mtnopt attempts to guess appropriate syntax from the value of the SHELL environment variable. This can be overridden with the -s and -c command‐line options.
-s Print variable assignments in sh(1) syntax. -c Print variable assignments in csh(1) syntax. -v Print only the values, with no indication of the corresponding option keys. -d directory Look for _MTN/options in directory, rather than in the current directory. -k keys Print assignments for only those options that match the egrep(1) regular expression keys. -h Print a help message and exit.
mtnopt only looks in the current directory for the _MTN directory, so it will fail in a subdirectory of a workspace. mtnopt should be aware of the set of possible options, rather than blindly printing whatever is in _MTN/options. The behavior when there is no _MTN/options file to be found is less than helpful.
