NAME

       setup.types - epm gui setup types file format.

DESCRIPTION

       The  EPM  setup  program  normally  presents  the  user  with a list of
       software products to install,  which  is  called  a  "custom"  software
       installation.

       If  a  file called setup.types is present in the package directory, the
       user will instead be presented with a list of installation types.  Each
       type  has an associated product list which determines the products that
       are installed by default. If a type has no products associated with it,
       then  it  is treated as a custom installation and the user is presented
       with a list of packages to choose from.

FILE FORMAT

       The setup.types file is an ASCII  text  file  consisting  of  type  and
       product  lines.  Comments  can  be inserted by starting a line with the
       pound sign (#). Each installation type is defined by  a  line  starting
       with  the  word  TYPE. Products are defined by a line starting with the
       word INSTALL:

     TYPE Typical End-User Configuration
     INSTALL foo
     INSTALL foo-help
     TYPE Typical Developer Configuration
     INSTALL foo
     INSTALL foo-help
     INSTALL foo-devel
     INSTALL foo-examples
     TYPE Custom Configuration

       In the example above, three installation types are defined.  Since  the
       last  type  includes  no  products, the user will be presented with the
       full list of products to choose from.
