C.1.5 Module options

Either regular modules or ampersand modules can contain options, which supply additional information concerning the module.

-d name

Name the working directory something other than the module name.

-e prog

Specify a program prog to run whenever files in a module are exported. prog runs with a single argument, the module name.

-o prog

Specify a program prog to run whenever files in a module are checked out. prog runs with a single argument, the module name. See How the modules file “program options” programs are run for information on how prog is called.

-s status

Assign a status to the module. When the module file is printed with ‘cvs checkout -s’ the modules are sorted according to primarily module status, and secondarily according to the module name. This option has no other meaning. You can use this option for several things besides status: for instance, list the person that is responsible for this module.

-t prog

Specify a program prog to run whenever files in a module are tagged with rtag. prog runs with two arguments: the module name and the symbolic tag specified to rtag. It is not run when tag is executed. Generally you will find that the ‘taginfo’ file is a better solution (see section Taginfo).

You should also see see section How the modules file “program options” programs are run about how the “program options” programs are run.
