8.6.6 doc-output options

Definition output disposition options:.

output option.

This is the “output file to open” option. This option takes a string argument ‘file’.

This option has some usage constraints. It:

If you are not sending the output to an AutoGen process, you may name an output file instead.

autogen option.

This is the “invoke autogen with defs” option. This option takes an optional string argument ‘ag-cmd’.

This option has some usage constraints. It:

This is the default output mode. Specifying no-autogen is equivalent to output=-. If you supply an argument to this option, that program will be started as if it were AutoGen and its standard in will be set to the output definitions of this program.

template option.

This is the “template name” option. This option takes a string argument ‘file’. Specifies the template name to be used for generating the final output.

agarg option.

This is the “autogen argument” option. This option takes a string argument ‘ag-opt’.

This option has some usage constraints. It:

This is a pass-through argument. It allows you to specify any arbitrary argument to be passed to AutoGen.

base-name option.

This is the “base name for output file(s)” option. This option takes a string argument ‘name’.

This option has some usage constraints. It:

When output is going to AutoGen, a base name must either be supplied or derived. If this option is not supplied, then it is taken from the template option. If that is not provided either, then it is set to the base name of the current directory.
