Full Command-Line Interface¶
usage: catkin locate [-h] [--workspace WORKSPACE] [--profile PROFILE] [-e] [-r] [-q] [-s | -b | -d | -i] [--shell-verbs] [--examples] [PACKAGE] Get the paths to various locations in a workspace. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --workspace WORKSPACE, -w WORKSPACE The path to the catkin_tools workspace or a directory contained within it (default: ".") --profile PROFILE The name of a config profile to use (default: active profile) Behavior: -e, --existing-only Only print paths to existing directories. -r, --relative Print relative paths instead of the absolute paths. -q, --quiet Suppress warning output. Sub-Space Options: Get the absolute path to one of the following locations in the given workspace with the given profile. -s, --src Get the path to the source space. -b, --build Get the path to the build space. -d, --devel Get the path to the devel space. -i, --install Get the path to the install space. Package Directories: Get the absolute path to package directories in the given workspace and sub-space. By default this will output paths in the workspace's source space. If the -b (--build) flag is given, it will output the path to the package's build directory. If the -d or -i (--devel or --install) flags are given, it will output the path to the package's share directory in that space. If no package is provided, the base space paths are printed, e.g. `catkin locate -s` might return `/path/to/ws/src` and `catkin locate -s foo` might return `/path/to/ws/src/foo`. PACKAGE The name of a package to locate. Special Directories: Get the absolute path to a special catkin location --shell-verbs Get the path to the shell verbs script. --examples Get the path to the examples directory.
