2.2 Changing the Output File Name

--output-file=file
This option instructs ebrowse to generate a Lisp data base with name file. By default, the data base is named BROWSE, and is written in the directory in which ebrowse is invoked.

If you regularly use data base names different from the default, you might want to add this to your init file:

          (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '(NAME . ebrowse-tree-mode))

where NAME is the Lisp data base name you are using.


--append
By default, each run of ebrowse erases the old contents of the output file when writing to it. You can instruct ebrowse to append its output to an existing file produced by ebrowse with this command line option.
