Sun WorkShop TeamWare Shortcuts
Sun WorkShop TeamWare provides several shortcuts to make it easier to use. This chapter discusses the following topics:
- Accessing TeamWare From the Command Line
- GUI Shortcuts
Accessing TeamWare From the Command Line
In addition to working with Sun WorkShop TeamWare tools through the graphical user interface (GUI), you can also type TeamWare commands at any system prompt. You can access Sun WorkShop TeamWare commands through the GUI and at the command line, and both can be used interchangeably. You can simultaneously use the GUI for some functions and work at the command line for others. You can include these commands in scripts or programs to further automate your file management.
This list includes the syntax of each command with command options enclosed in square brackets. For example, here is the syntax of the
bringover [-w child_ws] [-p parent_ws] [-c comment] [-m comment_file] [[-f flp]...] [-n] [-g] [-q] [-v] [-B] [-C] [files and dirs]
Sun WorkShop TeamWare tools provide several ways to reduce typing long command lines, including environment variables and argument files that store previously specified arguments. To get a detailed listing of the command and the options you can use with the command, type
man <commandname>, for example:
Note Because Sun WorkShop product man pages do not install into the standard
/usr/share/mandirectories, you must change your
MANPATHenvironment variable to enable access to Sun WorkShop TeamWare man pages. See Access to Sun WorkShop Development Tools.
TABLE 11-1 lists often-used Configuring menu items and their corresponding commands.
TABLE 11-1 Configuring Menu Items and Corresponding Commands Create Workspace
To make a workspace the default for command line commands, set the
CODEMGR_WSenvironment variable. See Configuring Environment Variables.
To start Merging from the command line without loading any input files (assuming that the Merging executable is in your search path), at a shell command prompt, type
twmergefollowed by the ampersand (
twmergecommand starts Merging (in the background) without loading any files. To start Merging with files loaded in each window, see Loading Two Files at Startup.
twmergecommand is summarized below, with command options enclosed in square brackets.
twmerge [-b] [-r] [-tabsize number] [-diffopt [bwi]] [-a ancestor] [-f1 name1] [-f2 name2] [-l listfile] [ leftfile rightfile [outfile] ] [-V]
Loading Two Files at Startup
To load two files at the time you start Merging from the command line, change to the directory in which the files are stored and specify the file names on the command line. To merge two files named
file_2, use the following command:
The first file listed appears in the left text pane; the second file appears in the right pane.
Loading Three Files at Startup
To merge the same two files and at the same time compare them to a common ancestor named
ancestor_file, change to the directory in which the files are stored and use the following command:
ancestor_file file_1 file_2
The ancestor file is not displayed, but differences between the ancestor file and the two descendants are marked, and the merged output file is based on the ancestor file.
You can create, update, and extract freezepoints at the command line. To see a list of Freezepoint commands, type.
freezeptcompare ...create ...diff ...extract ...helpsid ...smid ...update ....
There are several shortcuts built into the Sun WorkShop TeamWare interface. This is true for selecting workspaces, directories and files:
- Click an icon to select a single workspace, file or directory. Shift-click to select multiple workspaces, files or directories.
- Select groups of files by clicking the left mouse button in an empty portion of the dialog box and dragging the bounding box to surround any number of icons. When you release the button, all the files within the bounding box are selected.
- Select files and directories by moving the pointer over any file or directory icon and clicking. You can extend the selection to include any number of additional files and directories by moving the pointer over them and clicking the middle mouse button.

Double-Click Actions in Configuring
When you double-click with the pointer over a workspace icon, the TeamWare Versioning is automatically started (with the selected workspace automatically loaded). If you double-click when the pointer is over the icon of a workspace that contains unresolved conflicts, Configuring automatically activates the Resolve tab. Conflicted files from the selected workspace are automatically loaded and ready for processing. You can customize Configuring double-click behavior using the Tool Properties dialog box (see FIGURE 3-7).
Double-Click Actions in Versioning
By default, double-clicking on a file in the Versioning window "toggles" the state of the file, that is, it will check out the file, or if the file is already checked out, it will check in the file. You can change the double-click action to display the file history instead in Versioning Options (View Options, General Tab). See Changing Versioning Properties.
Double-Click Action File History
Double-clicking on a delta in the Versioning File History window displays the delta in your default editor.
