NAME


aegis new change - add a new change to a project

SYNOPSIS


aegis -New_Change [ number ] -File attr-file [ option... ]
aegis -New_Change [ number ] -Edit [ option... ]
aegis -New_Change -List [ option... ]
aegis -New_Change -Help

DESCRIPTION


The aegis -New_Change command is used to add a new change to a project. See aecattr(5)
for information on the format of the attr-file.

The change is created in the awaiting development state. The change is not assigned to
any user. The change has no development directory. boxwid = 1 down S0: arrow " new"
ljust " change" ljust S1: box "awaiting" "development" arrow " develop" ljust " begin"
ljust S2: box "being" "developed" spline -> from 1/3<S1.nw,S1.sw> then left 0.75 then up
2/3 "new" "change" "undo" T1: spline -> from S2.w then left 0.75 then up 11/12 then to
1/3<S1.sw,S1.nw> " develop" ljust " begin" ljust " undo" ljust at T1.c - (0.75,0)

You may choose your own change number if you want, provided that it has not been used
already. If you do not specify a change number, aegis will allocate the lowest unused
change number. The first few change numbers are reserved for branches later in the
project, and so automatically allocated change numbers will usually not start from 1.
See aepa(1) and aepattr(5) for more information.

You must give the -Project option, see below.

Notification
This is one of the rare "state transitions" which does not have a notification command.
The assumption is this command is invoked by the system which usually receives
notifications.

OPTIONS


The following options are understood:

-Edit
Edit the attributes with a text editor, this is usually more convenient than
supplying a text file. The VISUAL and then EDITOR environment variables are
consulted for the name of the editor to use; defaults to vi(1) if neither is set.
See the visual_command and editor_command fields in aeuconf(1) for how to
override this specifically for Aegis.

Warning: Aegis tries to be well behaved when faced with errors, so the temporary
file is left in your home directory where you can edit it further and re-use it
with a -file option.

The -edit option may not be used in the background, or when the standard input is
not a terminal.

-Edit_BackGround
Edit the attributes with a dumb text editor, this is most often desired when edit
commands are being piped into the editor via the standard input. Only the EDITOR
environment variable is consulted for the name of the editor to use; it is a
fatal error if it is not set. See the editor_command field in aeuconf(1) for how
to override this specifically for Aegis.

-File filename
Take the attributes from the specified file. The filename `-' is understood to
mean the standard input.

-Help
This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aegis
program.

-List
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 a filename which is to be written with the
automatically determined change number. Useful for writing scripts.

-Project name
This option is used to select the project for the new change.

You must supply the -Project option to this command. Experience has shown that
when a site has a number of active projects or several active branches on a
project, new changes are frequently created against the wrong project or the
wrong branch. Making the project explicit reduces this problem.

-REAson text
This option may be used to attach a comment to the change history generated by
this command. You will need to use quotes to insulate the spaces from the shell.

-TERse
This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare minimum of
information. It is usually useful for shell scripts.

-Verbose
This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output. By default aegis
only produces output on errors. When used with the -List option this option
causes column headings to be added.

-Wait This option may be used to require Aegis commands to wait for access locks, if
they cannot be obtained immediately. Defaults to the user's lock_wait_preference
if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-No_Wait
This option may be used to require Aegis commands to emit a fatal error if access
locks cannot be obtained immediately. Defaults to the user's
lock_wait_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

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

RECOMMENDED ALIAS


The recommended alias for this command is
csh% alias aenc 'aegis -nc \!* -v'
sh$ aenc(){aegis -nc "$@" -v}

ERRORS


It is an error if the current user is not an administrator of the project. (In some
cases it is possible for developers of a project to create changes, see aepattr(5) for
more information.)

EXIT STATUS


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

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES


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.
