DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the boa-constructor command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
boa-constructor is an IDE and a RAD tool for creating cross-platform applications built on top of the Python language and the WxWindows GUI toolkit.
OPTIONSThese programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
- -O, --OverridePrefsDirName directory
- Specify a different directory to load preferences from. Default is $HOME/.boa-constructor and is used if it exists. Directory will be created (and populated) if it does not exist.
- -C, --Constricted
- Run in constricted mode, overrides the preferences.
- -D, --Debug
- Run the first filename passed on the command-line in the Debugger on startup.
- -T, --Trace
- Run in trace mode. Used for tracking down core dumps. Every function call is logged to a file which can later be parsed for a traceback.
- -S, --StartupFile
- Execute the script pointed to by $BOASTARTUP or $PYTHONSTARTUP in the Shell namespace. The Editor object is available as sys.boa_ide. Overrides the preferences.
- -B, --BlockHomePrefs
- Prevent the $HOME directory being used.
- -E, --EmptyEditor
- Don't open the files that were open last time Boa was closed.
- -R, --RemoteDebugServer
- Run the first filename passed on the command-line in a Remote Debugger Server that can be connected to over a socket.
- -h, --help
- Show summary of options.
- -v, --version
- Show version of program.
The program contains an integrated help and a little tutorial.
