epminstall - add a directory, file, or symlink to a list file.


epminstall [ options ] file1file2...fileNdirectory
epminstall [ options ] file1file2
epminstall [ options ] -d directory1directory2...directoryN


epminstall adds or replaces a directory, file, or symlink in a list file. The default list file is "epm.list" and can be overridden using the EPMLIST environment variable or the --list-file option.

Entries are either added to the end of the list file or replaced in-line. Comments, directives, and variable declarations in the list file are preserved.


epminstall recognizes the standard Berkeley install(8) command options:
Make a backup of existing files (ignored, default for epm.)
BSD old compatibility mode (ignored.)
-g group
Set the group owner of the file or directory to group. The default group is "sys".
-m mode
Set the permissions of the file or directory to mode. The default permissions are 0755 for directories and executable files and 0644 for non-executable files.
-o owner
Set the owner of the file or directory to owner. The default owner is "root".
Strip the files (ignored, default for epm.)
--list-file filename.list
Specify the list file to update.
