ggz-config - GGZ Gaming Zone configuration manager
ggz-config [--configdir] [--gamedir] [--datadir] [--protocol]
ggz-config --install --modfile=FILENAME [--destdir] [--force]
ggz-config --remove --modfile=FILENAME
The program ggz-config is a central tool and part of the client
libraries package of the GGZ Gaming Zone. It can be used for several
purposes. Primarily it is used to maintain the ggz.modules
configuration file by installing and removing game module information.
This is done with the --install and --remove modes of operation.
Additionally, the program can query the installation settings of the
GGZ client libraries to assist in configuring the build process of a
client or game module.
Query Mode Options
Output location of the GGZ client libraries configuration
directory and exit. This value will usually be @ggzconfdir@ and
is where the file ggz.modules is located.
Output location of the executable game modules and exit. Game
modules in this directory are all game clients which are not
installed into a standard PATH directory, mostly because they
only run when invoked by a GGZ core client. As a special module,
the game client wrapper ggzwrap is installed into this place.
The gamedir is usually @ggzexecmoddir@.
Output location of game module data directory and exit. This is
where games look for their graphics and level data. This will
likely resolve to @ggzdatadir@.
Query GGZ_CS_PROTO_VERSION - version of core protocol between
the GGZ server and any GGZ core clients.
Output help information and exit.
Print some ggz-config usage scenarios for quick reference.
Output version information and exit.
Install Mode Options
Specifies that we are installing a game module description.
Specifies the source module description file. FILENAME will
often be named module.dsc, but this is merely a convention.
Overwrite an existing module entry of the same name, author and
version rather than returning an error.
Specifies that the $DESTDIR environment variable contains a
directory to prepend to the path for the GGZ module
configuration file (ggz.modules). The only known purpose for
this is for creating binary packages of GGZ games.
Uninstall Mode Options
Specifies that we are removing a game module description.
Specifies the source module description file.
Game module registry for all GGZ Gaming Zone core clients.
Used during install process, most commonly by the build sequence
of binary packages such as rpm or dpkg.
The program is currently unable to detect many problems that could
arise with an invalid ggz.modules file.
Probably others, too numerous to mention.
