aerect − draw a rectangle


aerect [ option... ] width height
aegis -Help
aegis -VERSion


The aerect command is used to draw rectangles for use with the intranet interface.


The following options are understood:

This option may be used to specify the bevel size. A size of 0 may be use to specify no bevel. Defaults to 3 if not specified.

−Color red green blue

This option may be used to specify the color of the rectangle. The components are specified in a range from 0 to 255. If not specified, the color will be based on the size of the rectangle.


This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aegis program.

−Output filename

This option may be used to specify the output file. The output is sent to the standard output by default.

See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are optional. You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all interpreted to mean the -Project option. The argument "-prj" will not be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not supplied.

Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on the command line, after the function selectors.

The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’. The "--option=value" convention is also understood.


The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aegis command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.


See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file’s project_specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
