The current help information as it would be printed at the command line.
§1. Running Inbuild with -help currently produces the following summary. Note that Inbuild shares a number of command-line options with Inform7, and those not documented in this manual are covered in that one.
A simple build and package manager for the Inform tools. usage: inbuild [-TASK] TARGET1 TARGET2 ... -archive sync copies of all extensions, kits and so on needed for -project into Materials -archive-to X sync copies of all extensions, kits and so on needed into nest X -build incrementally build target(s) -build-locate show file paths of all the extensions, kits and so on needed to build -build-missing show the extensions, kits and so on which are needed to build but missing -build-needs show all the extensions, kits and so on needed to build -build-registry X construct HTML menu pages for registry in the directory X -build-trace show verbose reasoning during -build (default is -no-build-trace) -no-confirmed don't confirm installation in the Inform GUI apps (default is -confirmed) -contents-of X apply to all targets in the directory X -copy-to X copy target(s) to nest X -dry make this a dry run (print but do not execute shell commands) (default is -no-dry) -graph show dependency graph of target(s) but take no action -inspect show target(s) but take no action -json X write output of -inspect to a JSON file in X (or '-' for stdout) -matching X apply to all works in nest(s) matching requirement X -modernise update copies to the newest available format -preprocess-app X use CSS suitable for app platform X (macos, windows, linux) -preprocess-html X construct HTML page based on X -preprocess-html-to X set destination for -preprocess-html to be X -rebuild completely rebuild target(s) -recursive run -contents-of recursively to look through subdirectories too (default is -no-recursive) -no-repair don't quietly fix missing or incorrect extension metadata (default is -repair) -results X write HTML report file to X (for use within Inform GUI apps) -sync-to X forcibly copy target(s) to nest X, even if prior version already there -tools X make X the directory of intools executables -use-locate show file paths of all the extensions, kits and so on needed to use -use-missing show the extensions, kits and so on which are needed to use but missing -use-needs show all the extensions, kits and so on needed to use -verbose equivalent to -verbosity=1 (default is -no-verbose) -verbosity=N how much explanation to print: lowest is 0 (default), highest is 3 -verify-registry X verify roster.json metadata of registry in the directory X -no-versions-in-filenames don't append _v number to destination filenames on -copy-to or -sync-to (default is -versions-in-filenames) for translating Inform source text to Inter: -basic use Basic Inform language -case X make any source links refer to the source in extension example X -census withdrawn: previously, 'perform an extensions census' (default is -no-census) -debug compile with debugging features even on a Release (default is -no-debug) -format=X compile to the format X (default is Inform6/32) -o X use file X as the compiled output (not for use with -project) -project X work within the Inform project X -release compile a version suitable for a Release build (default is -no-release) -rng fix the random number generator of the story file (for testing) (default is -no-rng) -source X use file X as the Inform source text for locating resources in the file system: -deprecated-external X same as -external X, but issues warnings if the nest is actually used -external X use X as the user's home for installed material such as extensions -internal X use X as the location of built-in material such as the Standard Rules -nest X add the nest at pathname X to the search list -transient X (an option now withdrawn) for tweaking code generation from Inter: -kit X (an option now withdrawn) -pipeline X specify code-generation pipeline by name (default is "compile") -pipeline-file X specify code-generation pipeline as file X -variable X set pipeline variable X (in form name=value) for the use of the Inform GUI apps in managing extensions in materials folders: -install install extension within the Inform GUI apps -run-moderniser like '-modernise' but for use within the Inform GUI apps only -uninstall remove extension within the Inform GUI apps for generating extension or kit documentation: -document (re-)generate documentation on this within current project -document-from X generate documentation from documentation in a single Markdown file X -document-set X generate documentation from a full documentation set in the path X -document-sitemap X use file X as the 'sitemap.txt' when generating documentation sets -document-to X divert generated documentation to directory X for generating HTML from Markdown: -markdown-from X generate HTML file from Markdown source file X -markdown-from-dir X generate HTML files from all Markdown sources in X -markdown-model X
