xcrun(1) [osx man page]

     xcrun -- run or locate development tools

xcrun [-sdk SDK] -find <tool_name> xcrun [-sdk SDK] [-log] <tool_name> [<tool_arguments>] <tool_name> [<tool_arguments>] DESCRIPTION
xcrun provides a means locate or invoke coexistence- and platform-aware developer tools from the command-line, without requiring users to modify makefiles or otherwise take laborious or inconvenient measures to adopt Xcode's multiple tool chains. xcode-select is used to specify which installation of Xcode is used, and may be overridden by the DEVELOPER_DIR environment variable. The SDK defaults to the current OS SDK, and can be specified by SDKROOT environment variable or the -sdk flag (which takes precedences over SDKROOT). USAGE
The first usage returns the full path to the found tool_name. The second usage executes tool_name with the given tool_arguments. The last syntax is when xcrun replaces any of the standard UNIX developer tools (typically in /usr/bin). In this case, xcrun will use its tool name to locate the corresponding tool within evaluated DEVELOPER_DIR and SDK. If the tool is not named xcrun , tool_arguments are not parsed by xcrun. OPTIONS
-verbose display information about how the redirected path is constructed. -no-cache don't consult the cache when looking up values. In effect, causes the cache to be refreshed. -sdk SDK specifies which SDK to use. Overrides any SDKROOT set in the environment. -log print the full command line that is invoked. -find print the full path to the tool. ENVIRONMENT
DEVELOPER_DIR - specifies the search path for locating the current developer tools (overrides xcode-select default). SDKROOT - specifies the SDK to use; overriden by the command line -sdk flag. xcrun_log - same as specifying -log xcrun_nocache - same as specifying -no-cache xcrun_verbose - same as specifying -verbose DIAGNOSTICS
When xcrun is invoked with the name xcrun , the flags -log and -verbose are useful debugging aids. The flag -no-cache can be used to bypass cache lookup. When xcrun as taken the place of another tool, the arguments are those of the tool replaced, and the various xcrun flags can't be used. In this case, use the specific environment variables instead.

xcodebuild -- build Xcode projects SYNOPSIS
xcodebuild [-project projectname] [-activetarget] [-alltargets] [-target targetname] [-parallelizeTargets] [-activeconfiguration] [-configuration configurationname] [-sdk <sdkfullpath> | <sdkname>] [buildaction ...] [setting=value ...] [-default=value ...] xcodebuild -version [-sdk [<sdkfullpath> | <sdkname> [<single item>]]] xcodebuild -find <binary> [-sdk <sdkfullpath> | <sdkname>] xcodebuild -showsdks xcodebuild -list xcodebuild -help DESCRIPTION
xcodebuild builds a target contained in an Xcode project. Usage Run xcodebuild from the directory containing your project (i.e. the directory containing the projectname.xcodeproj package). If you have multiple projects in the this directory you will need to use -project to indicate which project should be built. By default, xcodebuild builds the first target listed in your project, with the default build configuration. The order of the targets is a property of the project and is the same for all users of the project. The active target and active build configuration properties are set for each user of the project and can vary from user to user. Options -project projectname Build the project specified by projectname. Required if there are multiple project files in the same directory. -activetarget Builds the user's active target. -alltargets Build all the targets in the project. -target targetname Build the target specified by targetname. -nodependencies Only perform the action on the specified target(s), not on any targets upon which they depend. This option only applies to the 'clean' action. -parallelizeTargets Build independent targets in parallel when possible. With distributed builds or multiprocessor machines, this can cause projects with many simple targets to build substantially faster. This option only applies to targets with target dependencies. -activeconfiguration Use the user's active build configuration when building the target. -configuration configurationname Use the build configuration specified by configurationname when building the target. -sdk <sdkfullpath> | <sdkname> Build an Xcode project against the specified SDK, using build tools appropriate for that SDK. The argument may be an absolute path to an SDK, or the canonical name of an SDK. -showsdks Lists all available SDKs, including their canonical names suitable for use with -sdk. buildaction ... Specify a build action (or actions) to perform on the target. Available build actions are: build Build the target in the build root (SYMROOT). This is the default build action. installsrc Copy the source of the project to the source root (SRCROOT). install Build the target and install it into the target's installation directory in the distribution root (DSTROOT). clean Remove build products and intermediate files from the build root (SYMROOT). setting=value Set the build setting setting to value. -find binary -sdk <sdkfullpath> | <sdkname> Print the absolute path to binary in the context of sdk. If the -sdk argument is not provided, find uses the value of the build set- ting SDKROOT, if set. Returns EINVAL if a valid SDK could not be determined. The search order is the usr/bin directory in the SDK, the bin directory in the SDK, then each of the paths specified by the PATH environment variable. Returns ENOENT if the requested binary could not be located in any of the searched directories. NOTE: 'xcrun -find' is preferred because it caches the resulting find; xcrun uses xcodebuild to populate its cache. -version Display version information. When used in conjunction with -sdk, the version of the specified SDK is displayed, or all SDKs if -sdk is given no value. Additionally, a single line of the reported version information may be returned if specified. -default=value Set the user default default to value. -list Lists the targets in the project. Does not initiate a build. -nodistribute Disable distributed building. Overrides the distributed build setting stored in the user defaults by the Xcode preferences panel. -bonjourbuildhosts Enable distributed building and search for build machines using Bonjour. Build machines are added dynamically during the build as they are discovered. May be used alone or in conjunction with -buildhosts or -buildhostsfile. -nobonjourbuildhosts Do not search for build machines using Bonjour. Overrides the Bonjour distributed build setting stored in the user defaults by the Xcode preferences panel. -buildhosts hostlist Enable distributed building and set the list of build machines to the space separated list given in hostlist. -buildhostsfile hostsfile Enable distributed building and set the list of build machines to the contents of hostsfile. hostsfile is a text file containing build machine names, one per line. -help Displays usage information for xcodebuild. EXAMPLES
xcodebuild clean install Cleans the build directory; then builds and installs the first target in the project. xcodebuild -target MyTarget OBJROOT=/Build/MyProj/Obj.root SYMROOT=/Build/MyProj/Sym.root Builds the target MyTarget putting object (intermediate) files in one directory and the products of the build in another directory. xcodebuild -sdk macosx10.4 Builds an Xcode project against the Mac OS X 10.4 SDK. The canonical names of all available SDKs can be viewed using the -showsdks option. Mac OS X April 8, 2008 Mac OS X
