archpath

       branches

SYNOPSIS
       archpath
       archpath branch
       archpath branch--version

DESCRIPTION
       archpath is intended to be run in an arch (tla or Bazaar) working copy.

       In its simplest usage, archpath with no parameters outputs the  package
       name  (archive/category--branch--version)  associated  with the working
       copy.

       If a parameter is given, it may either be a branch--version,  in  which
       case  archpath  will output a corresponding package name in the current
       archive and category, or a plain branch name (without '--"),  in  which
       case  archpath  will output a corresponding package name in the current
       archive and category and with the same version as the  current  working
       copy.

       This  is useful for branching.  For example, if you're using Bazaar and
       you want to create a branch for a new feature, you might use a  command
       like this:

              baz branch $(archpath) $(archpath new-feature)

       Or  if  you  want  to tag your current code onto a 'releases' branch as
       version 1.0, you might use a command like this:

              baz branch $(archpath) $(archpath releases--1.0)

       That's much easier than using 'baz tree-version' to look up the package
       name and manually modifying the result.
