NAME

       aesub - substitute and echo strings

SYNOPSIS

       aesub [ option...  ] string ...
       aesub -Help
       aesub -VERSion

DESCRIPTION

       The aesub command is used to perform the usual aesub(5) substitutions
       on its command line arguments, and then echo them to the standard
       output.

   Shell Script Quoting
       The aesub(1) command is often used in shell scripts.  It is important
       to remember that the shell will do its own substitutions on the command
       line argument before it invokes the aesub(1) command.  Usually, you
       don’t want this to happen, so you need to use single (’) quotes to do
       this.  (The shell continues to substitute inside double (") quotes.)

       Quote aesub(1) arguments using ’ single ’ quotes.

OPTIONS

       The following options are understood:

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

       -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.

       -File filename
               Take the text to be substituted from the specified file.  The
               filename ‘-’ is understood to mean the standard input.

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

       -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.

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

EXIT STATUS

       The aesub command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The aesub
       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.
