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.)

       -g group

       -m mode
            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".

            Strip the files (ignored, default for EPM.)

            Specify the list file to update.
