Name

aerptidx — report index file format

Synopsis

/opt/aegis/share/report.local.ft R

DESCRIPTION

The report index file is used to store pointers to report scripts, and descriptions of the reports.

When searching for a report, the aer(1) command searches down the AEGIS_PATH looking for report.index files, and searching them for the report named.

CONTENTS

where = [{ ... }];

This field is a table relating report name to file name. The structure is as follows:

name = string;

The name of a report. The command line argument naming scheme is used, to provide abbreviatable names.

description = string;

A brief description of the report. It should not be very long, one or two lines at most.

filename = string;

The name of the file containing the report script. If a relative path is given, it will be interpreted to be relative to the directory containing the report.index file.
