        aesub - substitute and echo strings

aesub(5) substitutions
        on its command line arguments, and then echo them to the standard out‐
    Shell Script Quoting
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
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.)
aesub(1) arguments using ’ single ’ quotes.


        The following options are understood:
                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
aegis(1) for a complete description of this
        -File filename
                Take the text to be substituted from the specified file.  The
                filename ‘-’ is understood to mean the standard input.
                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 envi‐
                ronment variable is consulted.  If that does not exist, the
                user’s $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project
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.
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 sup‐
        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.
        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.
