Build: --build arguments

The --build command must be given one or two parameters. Any other number of parameters and the process ends.

The first parameter must be an existing directory or a control.info1 file. If the first file is a control.info file, then a second parameter is expected although not necessary as it can be defined in the control.info file with the ROOT_TREE variable. Otherwise, only a directory name was expected and the presence of a second parameter is an error.

Note that if the first filename points to a file that is not a regular file or a directory (or a soft link to such) then an error is also raised.

  • 1. The control.info file doesn't need to be called control.info although it is expected to be as it is the default name for that file.
