dacsinit(1) Configure a minimal DACS federation interactively


dacsinit [-d] [-n]


This program is part of the DACS suite.

The dacsinit command interactively creates a minimal DACS federation and jurisdiction. By default, the program uses the default paths that were established when DACS was built and the example paths used by m[blue]dacs.quick(7)m[][1]. When prompted, typing Return/Enter selects the default value. It can also be used to create a configuration for a federation with one very basic jurisdiction based on names input to dacsinit. The resulting configuration can then be extended or customized manually.


This program can be found in the distribution's src directory. It is not copied elsewhere during installation.


The following options are accepted:


Avoid overwriting "real" files by appending a a suffix ("-xxx") to all files installed by this program. This is useful for debugging, but you must clean up these bogus files manually.


Do not actually do anything, but print the actions that would be done. Can be used with -d.


The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.
