NAME

       manifake - creates a MANIFEST.new out of a MANIFEST file

SYNOPSIS

       manifake

DESCRIPTION

       Manifake  is  a real simpleminded program that takes a MANIFEST file, such as one produced
       by a shar program, and creates a MANIFEST.new file ready  to  be  used  by  all  the  dist
       programs.  What  it  does is that all archive numbers are removed and the optional leading
       comments up to a dashed-line are thrown away.

       Manifake will typically be used when converting an existing package to use  metaconfig  or
       any other dist utility.
