NAME

       aegis -Change_Directory - change directory

SYNOPSIS

       aegis -Change_Directory [ option...  ][ relative-path ]
       aegis -Change_Directory -List [ option...  ]
       aegis -Change_Directory -Help

DESCRIPTION

       The aegis -Change_Directory command is used to obtain a path to change
       directory to.  If the relative-path is supplied, this will be added to
       the output.

       This command is usually used to calculate an argument for cd(1),
       however it can also be used to obtain an absolute path for change and
       project files.

OPTIONS

       The following options are understood:

       -BaseLine
               This option may be used to specify that the project baseline is
               the subject of the command.

       -BRanch number
               This option may be used to specify a different branch for the
               origin file, rather than the baseline.  (See also -TRunk
               option.  Please Note: the -BRanch option does not take a
               project name, just the branch number suffix.

       -GrandParent
               This option may be used to specify the grandparent branch (one
               up from the current branch) for the origin file, rather than
               the baseline.  (The -grandparent option is the same as the
               “-branch ..” option.)

       -Change number
               This option may be used to specify a particular change within a
               project.  See aegis(1) for a complete description of this
               option.

       -Development_Directory
               This option is used to specify that the development directory
               is the subject of the command.  This is only useful for a
               change which is in the being integrated state, when the default
               is the integration directory.

       -Help
               This option may be used to obtain more information about how to
               use the aegis program.

       -List
               This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects
               for this command.  The list may be more general than expected.

       -Project name
               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.

       -TERse
               This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare
               minimum of information.  It is usually useful for shell
               scripts.

       -TRunk
               This option may be used to specify the project trunk for the
               origin file, rather than the baseline.  (See also -BRanch
               option, the -trunk option is the same as the “-branch -”
               option.)

       -Verbose
               This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output.
               By default aegis only produces output on errors.  When used
               with the -List option this option causes column headings to be
               added.

       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
       supplied.

       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
       aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’.  The
       "--option=value" convention is also understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS

       The recommended alias for this command is
       csh%    alias aecd ’cd ‘aegis -cd \!* -v‘’
       sh$     aecd(){cd ‘aegis -cd "$@" -v‘}

ERRORS

       It is an error if the specified change is not in a state where it has a
       directory to change to.

EXIT STATUS

       The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The aegis
       command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       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.
