NAME

       icmstart.rc - The icmstart(1) resource file

DESCRIPTION

       The  icmstart.rc  file  defines the initial files of a program that are
       installed by icmstart(1).

       By default icmstart.rc is found in /etc/icmake/icmstart.rc,  but  if  a
       file $HOME/.icmake/icmstart.rc is found then the latter file is used by
       icmstart(1).  $HOME/.icmake/icmstart.rc  in  turn   is   overruled   by
       specifying a -c option when invoking icmstart(1).

       The  default  resource  file  contains  the  following  specifications,
       preparing for the construction of a C++ program using icmbuild(1):

           CLASSES
           main.cc
           main.ih
           usage.cc
           version.cc
           ? scanner
           ? parser

       The icmstart.rc file may contain:

       o      empty lines are ignored;

       o      lines beginning with the hash-character (#) are ignored;

       o      Source path names. Relative path names are interpreted  relative
              to  the current working directory. Environment variables are not
              expanded, the initial tilde  character  is  interpreset  as  the
              user’s home directory.

       o      Source  path  names  followed  by a destination (relative to the
              directory initialized by icmstart(1)).  A  source  path  may  be
              either  a  file or a directory. If a directory is specified then
              all files in and below that directory will be installed.

       When specifying a destination a path may be specified as well. However,
       the destination path is always interpreted relative to the installation
       directory specified when calling icmstart(1).

       If a destination is omitted, the source is installed as specified below
       icmstart(1)’s destination directory.

       The first character of a line may be a question mark (followed by white
       space, a source path and optionally a destination path.  In  this  case
       the  user  is  asked  to  confirm that the source path should indeed be
       installed.

EXAMPLES

       The following entries can be used in an icmstart.rc file:

       o      source
              ‘Source’  must  be  in  the  skeleton   directory   visited   by
              icmstart(1)  and  is  installed  as  source  in  the destination
              directory specified when calling icmstart(1).

       o      source dest
              ‘Source’  must  be  in  the  skeleton   directory   visited   by
              icmstart(1)   and  is  installed  as  dest  in  the  destination
              directory specified when calling icmstart(1).

       o      ~/path~/path’ is installed as ~/path  in  the  destination  directory
              specified  when calling icmstart(1). The ~-character is expanded
              to the user’s home directory.

       o      ~/path dest~/path’ is installed  as  dest  in  the  destination  directory
              specified  when  calling icmstart(1). The ~-characteris expanded
              to the user’s home directory.

       o      /path
              ‘/path’ is installed as  ./path  in  the  destination  directory
              specified when calling icmstart(1).

       o      /path dest
              ‘/path’ is installed as dest in the destination directory

       o      ? source
              The user must confirm the installation of source.

       o      ? source dest
              The  user must confirm the installation of source as dest in the
              destination directory specified when calling icmstart(1).

       o      # text
              Interpreted as comment and ignored. The #-character must be  the
              first character on the line.

       o      an empty line
              Empty lines are skipped.

FILES

       The  mentioned  paths  are  sugestive  only  and  may  be  installation
       dependent:

              file;

       o      /usr/share/icmake/CLASSES Example of a icmstart.rc CLASSES file.

       o      /usr/share/icmake/icmstart.rc Default skeleton resource file.
