        aegstate - aegis state file




        The aegis state file is used to store the pointers to project directo‐


        where = [{ ... }];
                This field is a table relating project name to project direc‐
                tory.  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 set.)
                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 genera‐
        tor, 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
aepstate(5) for more information).
