==SUPPRESS==

−−output 'OUTPUT_FILE'

When doing −−list, send the inventory to a file instead of to the screen

−−playbook−dir 'BASEDIR'

Since this tool does not use playbooks, use this as a substitute playbook directory.This sets the relative path for many features including roles/ group_vars/ etc.

Add vars to graph display, ignored unless used with −−graph
