NAME

       archpath - output arch (tla/Bazaar) archive names, with support for branches

SYNOPSIS

       archpath
       archpath branch
       archpath branch--version

DESCRIPTION

       archpath is intended to be run in an arch (tla or Bazaar) working copy.

       In   its   simplest   usage,   archpath  with  no  parameters  outputs  the  package  name
       (archive/category--branch--version) associated with the working copy.

       If a parameter is given, it may either be a branch--version, in which case  archpath  will
       output a corresponding package name in the current archive and category, or a plain branch
       name (without ‘--"), in which case archpath will output a corresponding  package  name  in
       the current archive and category and with the same version as the current working copy.

       This  is useful for branching.  For example, if you're using Bazaar and you want to create
       a branch for a new feature, you might use a command like this:

              baz branch $(archpath) $(archpath new-feature)

       Or if you want to tag your current code onto a ‘releases’ branch as version 1.0, you might
       use a command like this:

              baz branch $(archpath) $(archpath releases--1.0)

       That's  much easier than using ‘baz tree-version’ to look up the package name and manually
       modifying the result.
