        aegstate - aegis global state file




        The aegis state file is used to store the pointers to project directories.


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

                project_name = string;
                        The name of a project.

                directory = string;
                        Absolute path of the project's directory.  (Only set of alias_for is not

                alias_for = string;
                        This is the name of another project, possibly including branch numbers.
                        It allows you to have shorter or more meaningful project names.  (Only
                        set if directory is not set.)


        When attempting to access these fields from within the report generator, you need a code
        fragment similar to the following:
                auto p;
                p = project[project_name()];
        That is, the where field is represented by the project array variable, however, it does
        not mention the aliases, only the actual projects, similar to the “ael projects” command.
        (You can, however, index the projects array by an alias, or even by a project name with
        branches on the end.)

        In addition to the project_name and directory fields specified above, the report
        generator insets a state field, which gives you access to the project state fields (see
        aepstate(5) for more information).
