Set a custom output directory for the conversion
If not given, the project toplevel directory is used.
Suppose we have an input file ./test.bigb. Then:
ourbigbook --outdir my_outdir test.bigb
places its output at:
my_outdir/test.html
The same would happen if we instead did a full directory conversion as in:
ourbigbook --outdir my_outdir .
The output would also be placed in my_outdir/test.html.
This option also relocates the out directory to the target destination, e.g.:
ourbigbook --outdir my_outdir test.bigb
would generate:
my_outdir/out
This means that the source tree remains completely clean, and every output and temporary cache is put strictly under the selected --outdir.
