ceylon(1) ceylon(1)

ceylon - The top level Ceylon tool is used to execute other Ceylon tools


[--stacktraces] [--paginate] [--no-pager] [--show-home] [--cwd=dir] [--config=file] [--no-config] [--define=key>=<value...] [--distribution=version-or-url] [--java=options] [--] {command} [command-options]... [command-args]...

If --version is present, print version information and exit. Otherwise <tool-arguments> should begin with the name of a ceylon tool or a list of comma-separated tool names which will be invoked one after the other with the same remaining command line arguments. The named tools are loaded and configured with the remaining command line arguments and control passes to those tools.

See ceylon help <command> for more information about a particular subcommand.

Specifies the configuration file to use for this tool. (default: ./.ceylon/config)
Specifies the current working directory for this tool. (default: the directory where the tool is run from)
--define=key>=<value, -D key>=<value
Set a system property
Determines which Ceylon distribution will be used to run the command. Passing any version except the current (1.3.3) will result in a one-time download of the requested version from the official Ceylon website.
Flags added to the java command line, overriding the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.
Specifies that no configuration file should be loaded for this tool.
Do not pipe Ceylon tool output into a pager.
Pipe all Ceylon tool output into less (or if set, $CEYLON_PAGER or $PAGER) if standard output is a terminal. This overrides the help.pager and defaults.pager configuration options (see the "Configuration Mechanism" section below).
Outputs the value for CEYLON_HOME and exits.
If an error propagates to the top level tool, print its stack trace.
--version, -v
Print version information and exit, null.

Ceylon uses a simple text format to store customizations that are per repository and are per user. Such a configuration file may look like this:

# A '#' or ';' character indicates a comment.
; global settings
    encoding = utf8
    pager = false
; local repository
[repository "LOCAL"]
    url = ./modules
Various commands read from the configuration file and adjust their operation accordingly. See ceylon-config(1) for a list and more details about the configuration mechanism.
