NAME

       epminstall - add a directory, file, or symlink to a list file.

SYNOPSIS

       epminstall options file1 file2 ... fileN directory
       epminstall options file1 file2
       epminstall options -d directory1 directory2 ... directoryN

DESCRIPTION

       epminstall  adds  or  replaces  a directory, file, or symlink in a list
       file. The default list file is "epm.list" and can be  overridden  using
       the EPMLIST environment variable or the --list-file option.

       Entries  are  either  added to the end of the list file or replaced in-
       line. Comments, directives, and variable declarations in the list  file
       are preserved.

OPTIONS

       epminstall recognizes the standard Berkeley install command options:

       -b
            Make a backup of existing files (ignored, default for EPM.)

       -c
            BSD old compatibility mode (ignored.)

            group is "sys".

            Set the permissions of the file or directory to mode. The  default
            permissions are 0755 for directories and executable files and 0644
            for non-executable files.

       -o owner
            Set the owner of the file or directory to owner. The default owner
            is "root".
