|Print I]number lines of trailing context after matching lines. Places a line containing a group separator (--) between contiguous groups of matches.|
|Print I]number lines of trailing context before matching lines. Places a line containing a group separator (--) between contiguous groups of matches.|
|Print the 0[hy]based byte offset within the input file before each line of output.|
|This option may be used to specify a particular change within a project. See aegis(1) for a complete description of this option.|
|--color||Surround the matched (non[hy]empty) strings, matching lines, context lines, file names, line numbers, byte offsets, and separators (for fields and groups of context lines) with escape sequences to display them in color on the terminal.|
|Print I]number lines of output context. Places a line containing a group separator (--) between contiguous groups of matches.|
|--Count||Suppress normal output; instead print a count of matching lines for each input file. With --invert-match option count non[hy]matching lines.|
|Interpret I]pattern as an extended regular expression.|
|Suppress normal output; instead print the name of each input file from which output would normally have been printed. The scanning will stop on the first match.|
|Suppress normal output; instead print the name of each input file from which no output would normally have been printed. The scanning will stop on the first match.|
|Interpret I]pattern as a list of fixed strings, separated by newlines, any of which is to be matched.|
|-Help||This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aegrep program.|
|Ignore case distinctions in both the I]pattern and the source files.|
|Invert the sense of matching, to select non[hy]matching lines.|
|Make sure that the first character of actual line content lies on a tab stop, so that the alignment of tabs looks normal.|
|Use line buffering on output.|
|Prefix each line of output with the 1[hy]based line number within its input file.|
|Stop reading a file after I]number matching lines.|
|Suppress error messages about nonexistent or unreadable files.|
|Print only the matched (non[hy]empty) parts of a matching line, with each such part on a separate output line.|
|Interpret I]pattern as a Perl regular expression.|
|This option may be used to select the project of interest. When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT environment variable is consulted. If that does not exist, the users $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project field (see aeuconf(5) for more information). If that does not exist, when the user is only working on changes within a single project, the project name defaults to that project. Otherwise, it is an error.|
|Report Unix[hy]style byte offsets.|
|Select only those lines containing matches that form whole words. The test is that the matching substring must either be at the beginning of the line, or preceded by a non[hy]word constituent character. Similarly, it must be either at the end of the line or followed by a non[hy]word constituent character. Word[hy]constituent characters are letters, digits, and the underscore.|
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 [lq]-project[rq], [lq]-PROJ[rq] and [lq]-p[rq] are all interpreted to mean the -Project option. The argument [lq]-prj[rq] 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 aegrep are long, this means ignoring the extra leading -. The [lq]--option=value[rq] convention is also understood.
The aegrep command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aegrep command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.
See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See aepconf(5) for the project configuration files project_ specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
