Vortex Library Option Summary

 

Several other command-line options exist for examining and maintaining the Vortex library. These options and the ones discussed above are summarized below:

  • -module M Specify the name of a module. Required with most other library action options.

  • -ci Check in a new revision of a module. Requires -module, optionally takes -lock or -unlock (the default) to lock or unlock the module as well. Optional -force forces check-in if no lock owned.

  • -CI Shorthand for -ci -force.

  • -co Check out (examine or modify) a module. Requires -module, optionally takes -lock or -unlock (the default) to lock or unlock the module as well. Optional -rev or -date to specify revision; default is latest.

  • -CO Shorthand for -co -force.

  • -lock Lock a module named with -module. Can also be used with -ci/-co.

  • -unlock Unlock a module named with -module. Can also be used with -ci/-co.

  • -listlib or -ll List the latest revision of each module in the library, when it was created, and if/when it was locked.

  • -LISTLIB or -LL Same as -listlib, but verbose: list log messages too. Added in version 3.01.982000000 20010212.

  • -listrev or -lr Like -listlib, but list every revision of each module. Optionally list revisions just for module named with -module.

  • -LISTREV or -LR Same as -listrev, but verbose: list log messages too. Added in version 3.01.982000000 20010212.

  • -wipelib Completely erase the library and re-create its tables.

  • -del Delete a module named with -module. Optionally delete only a specific revision with -rev, or all revisions older than a specific date with -date.

  • -targets List targets - scripts and other modules - that depend on the module named with -module. This shows what scripts will be affected by a change in the module (new revision).

  • -diff Compare two revisions of a module and print just the differences. Two -rev options specify the revisions. If the second is missing, the script file is compared; if the first is missing, the latest revision in the library is compared. Note: this option requires that the program diff (under Unix) or fc (under Windows) be in the path. The environment variable DIFFCMD may be set to an alternative program to use to compare files. Added in version 3.01.974500000 20001117.

  • -force Force a lock/unlock of a module if not the owner of a lock. This should only be used when it is known that the lock owner is no longer working on the module.

  • -rev N.N or -rN.N Give a specific module revision N.N for -co, -del, -diff.

  • -date D Give a date specifying revision(s) checked in on or before date D for -co, -del.

  • -log msg Specify log message msg when checking in a new module revision. The default is to prompt the user for a message.

  • -libdb db Specify alternate database to store/read modules to/from; the default is the texis.ini-defined default database (here. Used only for debugging/testing.
