NAME
       order - package installation order description file

DESCRIPTION
       The  package installation order file, .order, is an ASCII file specify-
       ing the order in which packages must be installed  based on their  pre-
       requisite  dependencies.   Any   package with prerequisite dependencies
       must be installed  after any packages it lists as a prerequisite depen-
       dency in its depend file.

       A  .order  file  is  required  for the OS product. The .order file must
       reside in the top-level directory containing the product.

       The ordering is specified as a list of package  identifiers,  from  the
       first  package  to be installed to the last, one package identifier per
       line.

NOTES
       The depend file supports incompatible and reverse  dependencies.  These
       dependency types are not recognized in the order  file.
