lr_check_service(1) check existence of Lire service


lr_check_service service

lr_check_service -l


lr_check_service checks if service service is supported in Lire, i.e. if there is a DLF converter registered under that name.

When called with the -l (for `list') option, lr_check_service lists all registered DLF converters.

Like all Lire scripts, you might want to call this script via lr_run(1), to deal sanely with this scripts' debug- and logging output.

You might prefer the lr_log2report(1) --help options to list available services: this command creates a more human-friendly format of the list.


Call this script in shell scripts as

 LR_SERVICE=`lr_check_service "$LR_SERVICE" || true`
 if test -z "$LR_SERVICE"
    echo >&2 "$tag err lr_check_service failed"
    exit 1
 # now go using $LR_SERVICE
