LOAD(1)                     General Commands Manual                    LOAD(1)



NAME
       load, loadc - load Application SunOS or Developer's Toolkit clusters

SYNOPSIS
       load [ filename ...]

       loadc [ cluster ... ]

       loadc appl

       loadc devel

AVAILABILITY
       Available  only  on  Sun  386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
       earlier.  Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.

DESCRIPTION
       load loads the optional clusters in the Application SunOS or the Devel-
       oper's  Toolkit  that contain the files specified in the filename argu-
       ments.  loadc loads the optional clusters in the Application  SunOS  or
       the Developers Toolkit specified in the cluster arguments.  Specify the
       special cluster name appl with loadc to load all the Application  SunOS
       clusters.  Likewise, specify devel to loadc to load all the Developer's
       Toolkit clusters.

       load and loadc require the user to  specify  the  distribution  medium,
       either  3.5-inch diskette or quarter-inch tape, and insert the diskette
       or tape.  The user will be asked to confirm that the  specified  medium
       has  been  inserted.  If the user confirmation is negative, no software
       will be loaded.

       Without arguments, load and loadc display a summary of the clusters  in
       the Application SunOS and Developer's Toolkit, including the load state
       and size of each cluster.

EXAMPLES
       To load the cluster that contains the spell(1) command:

              example% load spell
              Enter your distribution media type (1=1/4" tape, 2=3.5" diskette): 2
              Insert diskette n to load the spellcheck cluster, confirm (y/n): y
              Loading the spellcheck cluster ...
              The spellcheck cluster has been loaded.
              space used by clusters: 6021K bytes
              total space remaining: 20432K bytes
              example%

       To load the spellcheck cluster:

              example% loadc spellcheck
              Enter your distribution media type (1=1/4" tape, 2=3.5" diskette): 2
              Insert diskette n to load the spellcheck, confirm (y/n): y
              Loading the spellcheck cluster ...
              The spellcheck cluster has been loaded.
              space used by clusters: 6021K bytes
              total space remaining: 20432K bytes
              example%

       To display a summary of the  clusters  in  the  Application  SunOS  and
       Developer's Toolkit:

              example% load
              Application SunOS Optional Clusters:
                  available   cluster          size (bytes)
                  ---------   -------          ----
                    yes       accounting       265K
                    no        advanced_admin   501K
                    ...
              Developer's Toolkit Optional Clusters:
                  available   cluster          size (bytes)
                  ---------   -------          ----
                    no        base_devel       6907K
                    ...

              space used by clusters: 6021K bytes
              total space remaining: 20432K bytes
              example%

       A  cluster  is available if it has been "loaded" using load or loadc or
       if it has been "mounted" across the network.

ENVIRONMENT
       LOADMEDIA      Used to specify the distribution media type for the sys-
                      tem.   It  can  be  set  to diskette to specify 3.5-inch
                      diskette or tape to specify 1/4" tape.  If  it  is  set,
                      load  and  loadc will not ask the user to enter the dis-
                      tribution media type.

FILES
       /usr/cluster/appl   where Application SunOS  clusters  are  loaded  (or
                           mounted)
       /usr/cluster/devel  where  Developer's  Toolkit clusters are loaded (or
                           mounted)
       /usr/lib/load/*     data files

DIAGNOSTICS
       Wrong diskette/tape
              An incorrect diskette or tape was inserted.  The user will again
              be asked to insert the specified media.

       The file filename is not in any of the optional software clusters.
              The  specified  file  is  not  part  of the Application SunOS or
              Developer's Toolkit.

       There is no cluster cluster.
              The specified cluster is not part of the  Application  SunOS  or
              Developers Toolkit.

       The cluster cluster is already loaded, overwrite? (y/n):
              The specified cluster appears to have been loaded already.  Type
              y followed by RETURN to have the cluster loaded or n followed by
              RETURN to cancel the loading of the cluster.

       Cluster cluster requires nK; there is not enough disk space.
              There is not enough disk space to hold the specified cluster.

       The cluster cluster has not been loaded.
              The loading of the specified cluster has been canceled or inter-
              rupted by the user.

       The Application SunOS (and/or) Developers Toolkit are mounted.
              The Application SunOS or Developers Toolkit or both are  mounted
              across the network and can not be loaded or unloaded.

       The tape/diskette drive is currently in use.
              You  are  trying  to  load a cluster from tape (or diskette) and
              another process currently has control of the tape (or  diskette)
              drive.
