atf-config -- queries static configuration information of ATF
atf-config [-t] [var1 [.. varN]]
atf-config is a utility that queries static configuration information of
ATF. Static configuration refers to all those values for settings that
were built into the ATF binaries at build time.
In the first synopsis form, atf-config will print variable-value pairs
for all built-in static variables if no variable names are provided as
arguments. If any is provided, it will only print the variable-value
pairs for those variables. The output of the utility does not use the
`=' symbol to separate the variable name from its corresponding value in
an attempt to avoid sourcing the output in shell scripts or Makefiles.
If you need to do that, the -t flag allows you to query the value of
individual variables without any surrounding text.
In the second synopsis form, atf-config will print information about all
supported options and their purpose.
The following options are available:
-h Shows a short summary of all available options and their purpose.
-t Changes the output of the utility to show the variable values, one
per line, without the variable names.
Static configuration variables
The following list describes all the variables that are part of ATF's
atf_arch The architecture name detected by ATF. This is derived
from atf_machine because it is a subset of it. Given
that this name might be misdetected, it is provided to
the user as a configuration variable so that he can fix
its value temporarily until a real fix is incorporated
into mainstream sources.
atf_confdir The path to the directory that contains the system-wide
configuration files for ATF.
atf_libexecdir The path to the directory that contains the auxiliary
utilities of ATF, used internally by the public tools.
atf_machine The machine type name detected by ATF. This should not
be tunable but is provided for symmetry with atf_arch.
atf_pkgdatadir The path to the directory that contains the files that
form the ATF's shell-scripting library.
atf_shell The path to the shell interpreter that will be used by
atf_workdir The path to the temporary directory that the utilities
and the test programs will use to store temporary files
Every variable that is part of the static configuration can be overridden
at run-time by defining an environment variable. This environment vari-
able has the exact same name as the one shown by atf-config except that
the name is all composed of uppercase letters.
The recognized environment variables are:
ATF_ARCH Overrides the built-in value of atf_arch.
ATF_CONFDIR Overrides the built-in value of atf_confdir.
ATF_LIBEXECDIR Overrides the built-in value of atf_libexecdir.
ATF_MACHINE Overrides the built-in value of atf_machine.
ATF_PKGDATADIR Overrides the built-in value of atf_pkgdatadir.
ATF_SHELL Overrides the built-in value of atf_shell.
ATF_WORKDIR Overrides the built-in value of atf_workdir.
