       setup.types - epm gui setup types file format.


       The  EPM  setup  program  normally  presents  the user with a list of software products to
       install, which is called a "custom" software installation.

       If a file called setup.types is present in the package directory, the user will instead be
       presented  with  a  list  of  installation types. Each type has an associated product list
       which determines the products that are installed by default. If a  type  has  no  products
       associated  with it, then it is treated as a custom installation and the user is presented
       with a list of packages to choose from.


       The setup.types file is an ASCII text file consisting of type and product lines.  Comments
       can  be  inserted  by  starting  a line with the pound sign (#). Each installation type is
       defined by a line starting with the word TYPE. Products are defined  by  a  line  starting
       with the word INSTALL:

     TYPE Typical End-User Configuration
     INSTALL foo
     INSTALL foo-help
     TYPE Typical Developer Configuration
     INSTALL foo
     INSTALL foo-help
     INSTALL foo-devel
     INSTALL foo-examples
     TYPE Custom Configuration

       In  the  example above, three installation types are defined. Since the last type includes
       no products, the user will be presented with the full list of products to choose from.
