This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aexml program.

This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects for this command. The list may be more general than expected.
-Output filename
This option may be used to specify the output file. The output is sent to the standard output by default. If the file name ends with ".gz" it will be compressed with the gzip(1) algorithm, if it ends with ".bz" or ".bz2" it will be compressed with the bzip2(1) algorithm.

See also aexml(1) for options common to all aexml 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 supplied.

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 aexml are long, this means ignoring the extra leading '-'. The "--option=value" convention is also understood.


The aexml command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aexml command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.


See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
