       written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not  have  a  manual

       boa-constructor is an IDE and a RAD tool for creating cross-platform applications built on
       top of the Python language and the WxWindows GUI toolkit.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -O, --OverridePrefsDirName directory
              Specify  a  different  directory  to  load preferences from. Default is $HOME/.boa-
              constructor and is used if it exists. Directory will be created (and populated)  if
              it does not exist.

       -C, --Constricted
              Run in constricted mode, overrides the preferences.

       -D, --Debug

       -T, --Trace
              Run in trace mode. Used for tracking down core dumps. Every function call is logged
              to a file which can later be parsed for a traceback.

       -S, --StartupFile
              Execute the script pointed  to  by  $BOASTARTUP  or  $PYTHONSTARTUP  in  the  Shell
              namespace.   The   Editor   object  is  available  as  sys.boa_ide.  Overrides  the

              Prevent the $HOME directory being used.

       -E, --EmptyEditor
              Don't open the files that were open last time Boa was closed.

       -R, --RemoteDebugServer
              Run the first filename passed on the command-line in a Remote Debugger Server  that
              can be connected to over a socket.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.
