PKGPROTO(1) User Commands PKGPROTO(1)


NAME


pkgproto - generate prototype file entries for input to pkgmk command

SYNOPSIS


pkgproto [-i] [-c class] [path1]


pkgproto [-i] [-c class] [path1=path2]...


DESCRIPTION


pkgproto scans the indicated paths and generates prototype(4) file
entries that may be used as input to the pkgmk(1) command.


If no paths are specified on the command line, standard input is assumed
to be a list of paths. If the pathname listed on the command line is a
directory, the contents of the directory is searched. However, if input
is read from stdin, a directory specified as a pathname will not be
searched.


Package commands, such as pkgproto, are largefile(5)-aware. They handle
files larger than 2 GB in the same way they handle smaller files. In
their current implementations, pkgadd(1M), pkgtrans(1) and other package
commands can process a datastream of up to 4 GB.

OPTIONS


-i
Ignores symbolic links and records the paths as ftype=f (a
file) versus ftype=s (symbolic link).


-c class
Maps the class of all paths to class.


OPERANDS


path1
Pathname where objects are located.


path2
Pathname which should be substituted on output for path1.


EXAMPLES


Example 1: Basic Usage




The following example shows a common usage of pkgproto and a partial
listing of the output produced.


example% pkgproto /bin=bin /usr/bin=usrbin /etc=etc
f none bin/sed=/bin/sed 0775 bin bin
f none bin/sh=/bin/sh 0755 bin daemon
f none bin/sort=/bin/sort 0755 bin bin
f none usrbin/sdb=/usr/bin/sdb 0775 bin bin
f none usrbin/shl=/usr/bin/shl 4755 bin bin
d none etc/master.d 0755 root daemon
f none etc/master.d/kernel=/etc/master.d/kernel 0644 root daemon
f none etc/rc=/etc/rc 0744 root daemon


Example 2: Using pkgproto in a Pipeline




The following command shows pkgproto accepting the output of the find
command.


example% find / -type d -print | pkgproto
d none / 755 root root
d none /bin 755 bin bin
d none /usr 755 root root
d none /usr/bin 775 bin bin
d none /etc 755 root root
d none /tmp 777 root root


EXIT STATUS


0
Successful completion.


>0
An error occurred.

NOTES


By default, pkgproto creates symbolic link entries for any symbolic link
encountered (ftype=s). When you use the -i option, pkgproto creates a
file entry for symbolic links (ftype=f). The prototype(4) file would
have to be edited to assign such file types as v (volatile), e
(editable), or x (exclusive directory). pkgproto detects linked files.
If multiple files are linked together, the first path encountered is
considered the source of the link.


By default, pkgproto prints prototype entries on the standard output.
However, the output should be saved in a file (named Prototype or
prototype, for convenience) to be used as input to the pkgmk(1) command.
