shtoolize


VERSION
       GNU shtool 2.0.8 (18-Jul-2008)

SYNOPSIS
       shtoolize [-h] [-v] [-q] [-o script] module [ module ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       The shtoolize program builds individual GNU shtool scripts (written to
       the default output file "shtool" or to the specified script) out of one
       or more shtool ingredient modules.  Available modules are:

        echo       Print string with optional construct expansion
        mdate      Pretty-print modification time of a file or dir
        table      Pretty print a field-separated list as a table
        prop       Display progress with a running propeller
        move       Move files with simultan substitution
        install    Install a program, script or datafile
        mkdir      Make one or more directories
        mkln       Make link with calculation of relative paths
        mkshadow   Make a shadow tree
        fixperm    Fix file permissions inside a source tree
        rotate     Rotate a logfile
        tarball    Roll distribution tarballs
        subst      Apply sed(1) substitution operations
        platform   Platform identification utility
        arx        Extended archive command
        slo        Separate linker options by library class
        scpp       Sharing C Pre-Processor
        version    Generate and maintain a version information file
        path       Deal with program paths

       Additionally there is a pseudo-module ``"all"'' which can be used as a
       short-hand for ``"echo mdate table prop move install mkdir mkln
       mkshadow fixperm platform arx slo scpp version path"'', i.e. to build a
       shtool script with all modules in the standard order. An installed
       shtool is usually built this way via ``"shtoolize -o shtool all"''.

       Use the shtoolize program to build individual shtool scripts in case
       you want a smaller sized script and you don't need all of the available
       shtool functionality.  For instance for the classical Autoconf based
       free software package a "shtool" script build via ``"shtoolize -o
       shtool install mkdir"'' might be sufficient.
