cpset - install object files in binary directories
cpset [-o] object directory [-mode [-owner [-group]]]
The cpset command installs the specified object file in the given
directory. The mode, owner, and group, of the destination file can be
specified on the command line. If this data is omitted, two results
+ If you have administrative permissions (that is, your numerical
ID is less than 100), the following defaults are provided:
+ If you do not have administrative permissions, the default mode,
owner, and group of the destination file are the same as yours.
The -o option forces cpset to move object to OLDobject in the
destination directory before installing the new object.
cpset reads the /etc/src/destinations file to determine the final
destination of the file to be installed. The destinations file
contains pairs of path names separated by spaces or tabs. The first
name is the "official" destination (for example: /usr/bin/echo). The
second name is the new destination. If echo is moved from /usr/bin to
/usr/local/bin, the entry in destinations would be:
When the actual installation happens, cpset verifies that the "old"
pathname does not exist. If a file exists at that location, cpset
issues a warning and continues.
This file does not exist on a distribution tape; it is used by sites
to track local command movement. The procedures used to build the
source are responsible for defining the "official" locations of the
The environment variable ROOT is used to locate the destination file
(in the form $ROOT/etc/src/destinations). This is necessary in the
cases where cross generation is being done on a production system.
If you are an administrator, all of the following examples have the
same effect. They copy file echo into /usr/bin with mode, owner, and

If you are not an administrator, the last two examples set mode,
owner, and group to your current values.
