|-dl -debug-level INT||Sets the debug level. An unsigned integer is accepted. The default value is 0.|
|-h -help||Shows a help screen.|
|-V -Version||Displays the verion number of the XStow package. merge-info is shipped with xstow(1).|
|-C -no-curses||Do not detect the terminal width by using curses.|
|-u -unmerge||Unmerge instead of merge. Note: It is not possible splitting up one dir file into two. But removing the content of one dir file from the other one is possible.|
Write the resulting dir file not to stdout. Write it to a given
file. Since merge-info does not open this outfile until all the
merging or unmerging stuff is done it is allowed that the outfile is
one the source files. eg.:
|-d -duplicate||Remove duplicate entries. When merging 2 files an entry can appear in more than one section. If you do not want this, use this option.|
XSTOW_DEBUG_LEVEL Same as the -debug-level option. XSTOW_USE_CURSES Same as the -no-curses option.
In previous versions xstow tried detecting the terminal width and height, by default at the startup routine. Even if this value is only used by the help screen. The result was:
$ TERM="" xstow Error opening terminal: unknown.
The error message is reported by the ncurses lib. This can cause problems if you want start xstow as a cron job. Now xstow tries detecting the terminal width not in its startup, but when the help screen is printed out. As an extra option you can set the environment variable XSTOW_USE_CURSES=0 this will tell xstow not using curses anyway.
merge-info has the same behaviour.
