SYNOPSIS

cook_bom [ option... ] dirname [ outfile ]
cook_bom -Help
cook_bom -VERSion

DESCRIPTION

The cook_bom program is used to scan a directory and generate a cookbook fragment containing a bill of materials for that directory. It also includes a recursive reference, via an ‘‘#include-cooked’’ directive, to the bills of materials for nested directories.

Output is sent to the standard output unless an output filename is specified.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:
-DIRectory pathname
  This option may be used to specify a directory search path, similar to cook(1) CW][search_list] functionality.
-Help Provide some help with using the cook_bom program.
-IGnore string
  This option may be used to specify filename patterns to be ignored. It may be given as many times as required.
-PREfix string
  This option may be manipulate the name of the manifest files. Defaults to the empty string if not set.
-SUFfix string
  This option may be manipulate the name of the manifest files. Defaults to ‘‘CW]/manifest.cook if not set.
-VERSion Print the version of the cook_bom program being executed.
All other options will produce a diagnostic error.

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 "-help", "-HEL" and "-h" are all interpreted to mean the -Help option. The argument "-hlp" 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.

The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for cook_bom are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’. The "--option=value" convention is also understood.

EXIT STATUS

The cook_bom command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The cook_bom command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.

EXAMPLE

The intended use of this command is to automatically generate a project file manifest in an efficient way. If you have a cookbook of the form


all_files_in_. = ;
#include manifest.cook
manifest = [all_files_in_.];

set fingerprint mkdir unlink;

%0manifest.cook: ["if" [in "%0" ""] "then" "." "else" "%0"] { cook_bom [addprefix ’--dir=’ [search_list]] "--ignore=’*~’" [need] [target] ; }

At the end of this fragment, the CW]manifest variable contains a complete list of all files in the directory tree. This variable may then be taken apart with the CW]match_mask function to build ingredients lists.

The constructed manifest.cook files work for both whole-project and recursive (not recommended) builds.
