aspect outputs

Print paths to declared output files


Queries for the outputs declared by actions generated by the given target or the target(s) in the given query expression.

Prints each output file on a line, with the mnemonic of the action that produces it, followed by a path to the file, relative to the workspace root.

You can optionally provide an extra argument, which is a filter on the mnemonic.

'ExecutableHash' is a special value for the mnemonic. This combines the ExecutableSymlink and SourceSymlinkManifest mnemonics, then hashes the outputs of these two. This provides a good hash for an executable target to determine if it has changed.
