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

       The icmstart.rc file may contain:

       o      empty lines, which are ignored;

       o      lines beginning with a hash-character (#), also ignored;

       o      Optionally: a P (don’t install with icmstart xxx library) or an  L  (don’t  install
              with icmstart xxx program), followed by a blank; see also icmstart(1).

       o      Optionall:  a  ?  (followed by a blank) following the optional P or L in which case
              the installation of the element must be confirmed by the user.

       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.

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.
