epminstall(1) add a directory, file, or symlink to a list file.


epminstall options file1 file2 ... fileN directory
epminstall options file1 file2
epminstall options -d directory1 directory2 ... directoryN


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.


epminstall recognizes the standard Berkeley install command options:

Make a backup of existing files (ignored, default for EPM.)

BSD old compatibility mode (ignored.)
-g group

Set the group owner of the file or directory to group. The default group is "sys".
-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.)
--list-file filename.list
