NAME

       parrot_package_create  -  generate a package based on the accessed files and the preserved
       environment variables

SYNOPSIS

       parrot_package_create [options]

DESCRIPTION

       After recording the accessed files and environment variables of one program with the  help
       of  the  --name-list parameter and the --env-list of parrot_run, parrot_package_create can
       generate a package containing all the accessed files. You can also  add  the  dependencies
       recorded in a new namelist file into an existing package.

OPTIONS

       -a, --add=<path>
              The path of an existing package.

       -e, --env-list=<path>
              The path of the environment variables.

         --new-env
              The relative path of the environment variable file under the package.

       -n, --name-list=<path>
              The path of the namelist list.

       -p, --package-path=<path>
              The path of the package.

       -d, --debug=<flag>
              Enable debugging for this sub-system.

       -o, --debug-file=<file>
              Write  debugging  output  to  this  file.  By  default, debugging is sent to stderr
              (":stderr"). You may specify logs be sent to  stdout  (":stdout"),  to  the  system
              syslog (":syslog"), or to the systemd journal (":journal").

        -h, --help
              Show the help info.

EXIT STATUS

       On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.

EXAMPLES

       To generate the package corresponding to namelist and envlist:

               % parrot_package_create --name-list namelist --env-list envlist --package-path /tmp/package

       After executing this command, one package with the path of /tmp/package will be generated.

       Here is a short instruction about how to make use of parrot_run, parrot_package_create and
       parrot_package_run to generate one package for your experiment and repeat your  experiment
       within your package.

       Step  1: Run your program under parrot_run and using --name-list and --env-list parameters
       to record the filename list and environment variables.

               % parrot_run --name-list namelist --env-list envlist /bin/bash

       After the execution of this command, you can run your program inside  parrot_run.  At  the
       end of step 1, one file named namelist containing all the accessed file names and one file
       named envlist containing environment variables will be  generated.   After  everything  is
       done, exit parrot_run:

               % exit

       Step 2: Using parrot_package_create to generate a package.

               % parrot_package_create --name-list namelist --env-path envlist --package-path /tmp/package

       At the end of step 2, one package with the path of /tmp/package will be generated.

       Step 3: Repeat your program within your package.

               % parrot_package_run --package-path /tmp/package --shell-type bash ...

       After the execution of this command, one shell will be returned, where you can repeat your
       original program (Please replace --shell-type parameter with the shell type  you  actually
       used). After everything is done, exit parrot_package_run:

               % exit

       You  can  also  add  the  dependencies recorded in a new namelist file, namelist1, into an
       existing package:

               % parrot_package_create --name-list namelist1 --env-list envlist1 --new-env envlist1  --add /tmp/package

       After executing this command, all the new dependencies  mentioned  in  namelist1  will  be
       added  into  /tmp/package, the new envlist, envlist1, will also be added into /tmp/package
       with the name specified by the --new-env option.
