NAME

bpkg-cfg-create – create configuration

SYNOPSIS

bpkg cfg-create|create [options] [(module | conf-var)...]

DESCRIPTION

The cfg-create command creates a new bpkg configuration with the specified build2 modules and configuration variables. The bpkg configuration itself is a build system configuration; see the build2 create meta-operation for details.

Unless the --wipe option is specified, cfg-create expects the configuration directory to be empty or to not exist (in which case it will be created).

By default, the resulting configuration loads the config, test, and install modules. However, additional modules and, if required, their configuration variables can be specified as the cfg-create arguments. For example:

bpkg create cxx config.cxx=clang++ config.install.root=/usr/local

By default, bpkg appends .config to the names of the modules that you specify so that only their configurations are loaded. You can override this behavior by specifying the period (.) after the module name. You can also instruct bpkg to use the optional module load by prefixing the module name with the question mark (?). For example:

bpkg create cxx. "?cli"

CFG-CREATE OPTIONS

--directory|-d dir
Create the configuration in dir rather than in the current working directory.
--wipe
Wipe the configuration directory clean before creating the new configuration. For safety, this option requires that you specify the configuration directory explicitly with --directory|-d.
