pkgproto(1)                      User Commands                     pkgproto(1)

       pkgproto - generate prototype file entries for input to pkgmk command

       pkgproto [-i] [-c class] [path1]

       pkgproto [-i] [-c class] [path1=path2...]

       pkgproto  scans  the  indicated  paths  and generates prototype(4) file
       entries that may be used as input to the pkgmk(1) command.

       If no paths are specified  on  the  command  line,  standard  input  is
       assumed  to  be  a list of paths. If the pathname listed on the command
       line is a directory,  the contents of the directory is searched.   How-
       ever,  if input is read from stdin, a directory specified as a pathname
       will not be searched.

       -i              Ignores symbolic links and records the paths as ftype=f
                       (a file) versus ftype=s (symbolic link).

       -c class        Maps the class of all paths to class.

       path1    Pathname where objects are located.

       path2    Pathname which should be substituted on output for path1.

       Example 1: Examples of the use of pkgproto.1.

       The  following two examples show uses of pkgproto and a partial listing
       of the output produced.

       Example 1:

       example% pkgproto /bin=bin /usr/bin=usrbin /etc=etc
       f none bin/sed=/bin/sed 0775 bin bin
       f none bin/sh=/bin/sh 0755 bin daemon
       f none bin/sort=/bin/sort 0755 bin bin
       f none usrbin/sdb=/usr/bin/sdb 0775 bin bin
       f none usrbin/shl=/usr/bin/shl 4755 bin bin
       d none etc/master.d 0755 root daemon
       f none etc/master.d/kernel=/etc/master.d/kernel 0644 root daemon
       f none etc/rc=/etc/rc 0744 root daemon

       Example 2:

       example% find / -type d -print | pkgproto
       d none / 755 root root
       d none /bin 755 bin bin

       Application Packaging Developer's Guide

       By  default,  pkgproto  creates  symbolic link entries for any symbolic
       link encountered (ftype=s). When you use the -i option,  pkgproto  cre-
       ates  a  file entry for symbolic links (ftype=f). The prototype(4) file
       would have to be edited to assign such file types as  v  (volatile),  e
       (editable),  or x (exclusive directory). pkgproto detects linked files.
       If multiple files are linked together, the first  path  encountered  is
       considered the source of the link.

       By  default,  pkgproto prints prototype entries on the standard output.
       However, the output should be saved in a file (named Prototype or  pro-
       totype, for convenience) to be used as input to the pkgmk(1) command.
