This field is a table relating project name to project directory. The structure is as follows:
The name of a project.
Absolute path of the project's directory.
(Only set of
alias_for is not set.)
This is the name of another project, possibly including branch numbers. It allows you to have shorter or more meaningful project names. (Only set if directory is not set.)
When attempting to access these fields from within the report generator, you need a code fragment similar to the following:
auto p; p = project[project_name()];
That is, the
where field is represented by the
array variable, however, it does not mention the aliases, only the actual
projects, similar to the “ael projects” command. (You can,
however, index the
projects array by an alias, or even by a
project name with branches on the end.)
In addition to the
project_name and directory fields specified
above, the report generator insets a state field, which gives
you access to the project state fields (see
for more information).
