lr_check_superservice(1) map Lire service to Lire superservice


lr_check_superservice service lr_check_superservice -l


lr_check_superservice takes a Lire service as argument, and returns the superservice this service belongs to. In case the service is unknown, a userfriendly errormessage is given.

When called with the -l option, this script prints all supported superservices.

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


Call this script in shell scripts as

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