DESCRIPTION

boa-constructor is an IDE and a RAD tool for creating cross-platform applications built on top of the Python language and the WxWindows GUI toolkit.

OPTIONS

These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
-O, --OverridePrefsDirName directory
Specify a different directory to load preferences from. Default is $HOME/.boa-constructor and is used if it exists. Directory will be created (and populated) if it does not exist.
-C, --Constricted
Run in constricted mode, overrides the preferences.
-D, --Debug
Run the first filename passed on the command-line in the Debugger on startup.
-T, --Trace
Run in trace mode. Used for tracking down core dumps. Every function call is logged to a file which can later be parsed for a traceback.
-S, --StartupFile
Execute the script pointed to by $BOASTARTUP or $PYTHONSTARTUP in the Shell namespace. The Editor object is available as sys.boa_ide. Overrides the preferences.
-B, --BlockHomePrefs
Prevent the $HOME directory being used.
-E, --EmptyEditor
Don't open the files that were open last time Boa was closed.
-R, --RemoteDebugServer
